Event description
Brainstorm strategies for setting up learning environments built around sustainability and facilitated through outdoors loose parts play.

About this Event

Through this co-facilitated workshop between the Outsiders Play Advocates and Reverse Garbage Queensland, participants will have the opportunity to learn from the good case practice of Camp Hill OSHC on how to effectively manage loose parts and the theory behind it.

Angus Gorrie of Outsiders Play Advocates will take you through a practical unpacking, designed to arm you with all the knowledge you'll need to effectively implement and understand a loose parts setting, as well the knowledge to foster buy-in from relevant stakeholders.

Then, with the support of our Creative Reuse PD Facilitator, Anne Giacomantonio, we will look to take the learning deeper by brainstorming strategies to integrate sustainably responsible practices through an outdoor play setting.

Using a mixture of standard RGQ materials plus everyday discards from around the home we'll workshop Creative Reuse ideas to help build concepts that you can take back to your school or play room.

This Master Class is suitable for Educators' currently teaching:

  • Early Years Learning Framework
  • QCAA Prep to Year 6

As well as

  • OSHC Facilitators

About Angus

With a background in event organisation and management combined with behavioural science, Angus Gorrie has been working in the education sector for 12 years. Currently working as the Educational Leader at Camp Hill Outside School Hours Care, Angus and his team have a passion for proactive childhood development incorporating risky play, nature play, and playwork into the everyday program. In addition to OSHC, Angus is a passionate enthusiast of traditional "Adventure Playgrounds" and this is where his passion for loose parts as resources, but more importantly the practice and theories that allow them to be used in the most creative of ways by children comes from.

About Outsiders Play Advocates

The team at The Outsiders are committed to championing authentic free play experiences for children. By day, the Outsiders all practice what they preach in the field so to speak as playworkers at Camp Hill Outside School Hours Care, a service known for its cutting edge application of genuine free play and playwork principles into the daily practice. By appointment, The Outsiders offer information and practical stories that delve deeper into the realms of play, play theory and the many developmental benefits that surround it. Our team provides real-life stories married with theory to inspire more play journeys.

About Anne

Anne has been a member of the Reverse Garbage Queensland team for 5 years. In that time she’s contributed across a few roles within the co-operative finally settling in the workshops team as an educator and facilitator. Working across age groups from Early Years through to adult and Professional Development workshops she brings a sense of play and exploration to all her workshops.

Anne has professional qualifications in communications and a background in creative thinking and making. Within the RGQ educational setting Anne takes inspiration from young people’s enthusiasm, bubbling ideas and knowledge of the need for change.

She has a strong interest in circular / closed loops design and cooperative problem solving.

She likes nothing more than to be inspired by something unidentifiable that makes its way into the RGQ Warehouse. Disassociating its original purpose and reworking it into something new and fun.
