Nature Space

In 2015 Nestle Gympie awarded CCC a Community and Environment grant to re-purpose a cow paddock and dam on our eastern boundary. It took a few months of excavation to enlarge the dam and put in a top class Mountain Bike track.

In January 2016 staff planted the first greenery in the CCC Nature Space, which was essentially a barren-looking patch of gravel and dirt. All of Primary and a procession of Year 8, 9 and 10 Outdoor Education students have been steadily retaining and greening up the berms and bare spots ever since.

Our Early Learning Centre and Primary students have opportunity to visit the Nature Space weekly to explore, discover and play! At CCC we believe that play, including nature play, is essential for a full and healthy childhood. Our Nature Space provides us a perfect environment to encourage this at CCC. Students are able to build resilience, creativity and problem solving skills through outdoor play.
