Dunnville Horticultural Society members are so happy to see that the Thompson Creek Eco Park is being utilized as an outdoor learning centre. It has been a longstanding dream come true for Dan Mckay, co-chair of the Thompson Creek project along with Debbie Thomas DHS. The upgrades to the Eco Park were completed in 2019 in partnership with Haldimand County and DUC. The hope is more schools in the area will take advantage of the outdoor space and improvements will be ongoing.
From Deanna Bubish (Teacher)
The Ministry of Education and the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board offered teachers an opportunity to apply for funding to be part of an Experiential Learning Project. Mrs. Bubish and Mrs. Embleton, one of the Kindergarten teams from St. Michael’s school in Dunnville were successful in receiving funds for an Outdoor Learning project to take place at Thompson Creek Park Eco-Centre. The goal of the project is to provide opportunities for students to engage in hands-on, real world learning. Another aspect of the project is to establish and strengthen connections between schools, parents/guardians and community members. They will be partnering with Dunnville Horticultural Society. Our community partners will use their expertise and passion to ignite curiosity and wonder in our youngest learners.
