Better ways to use this space?
Outdoor classrooms – visit the preprimary area and look at how they have used their outdoor space.
Could we landscape the area to make it more useful? What would encourage students to use this area? How could the teachers use this space more effectively? 
Create a survey to find out what teachers use the grassed area, and for what purpose, and how often. Match this with how the preprimary teachers use their area. What other areas can we touch on? Sustainability?
