“Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and strength, use it to create” M.Montessori.

Killarney school is a CBE alternative Montessori based elementary program that services over 350 kids from K-6.  To honour the 150th year of Maria Montessori, the Killarney Parent Council created the 150th Legacy Project.  This project will enhance a publicly-accessible outdoor green space that reflects the values of MONTESSORI in experiential learning, natural world and land-based learning, and community peace.

 

In keeping with the tenets of MONTESSORI and to create a legacy of Killarney school history as a center of Montessori, our objectives are to:

  1. Introduce outdoor spaces that encourage land-based learning and connection

  2. Improve outdoor equipment that promotes safe hands-on interaction and exploration for all grades / ages

  3. Enhance the natural landscape to increase public interface with nature

With the help of generous parents, the Killarney Annual Fundraiser enabled the project to reach its second funding milestone of $24000. Thank you!

The project has been staged into 4 phases and funds distributed accordingly. 

The first phase, the Legacy Court, features a new 3-on-3 basketball half court, seating (soon) and a plethora of colourful games on the courtyard surface. Click HERE for the fabulous new games guide!

We will also begin work on the second phase "Terrace", which will introduce amphitheater-style seating into the hill, with some shading from new trees on the west side along the fence-line. The Terrace will be a space for outdoor teaching, socialization, and spectating the many sports that take place on the playing field.

The 3rd and final 4th phases, to be completed in spring 2022, will feature a sensory garden/nature path. For further details, please refer to the links below.
