Green Schoolyards for Student Wellbeing

Teacher Insights

Researchers are weighing the possibility of providing a “green” touch to schools that promote mental health and stability in children. When kids have access to natural areas, it improves their overall wellbeing including heart health, mental health and physical stamina. Bearing these issues in mind, researchers are mooting the concept of Green Schoolyards. The research was presented recently at the American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference & Exhibition in Chicago.

 Green Schoolyards can include outdoor classrooms, vegetable and floral patches, trees, ponds, trails, traditional play equipment and more, says Dr Stephen Pont, the author. Green Schoolyards do help students to breathe in the freshness of the great outdoors as part of their daily lives. Communities too benefit after school hours as they provide a great deal of value to families who would love to interact and engage in outdoor activities and relaxation.
