Students at Squamish Elementary had a chance to take their ideas to the drawing board — literally. Earlier today, kids were given the chance to help design their future outdoor classroom. The sessions were headed by facilitators from Co-Design Engage, which was founded by Stanley King. King made a name for himself around 1971 as a designer that helped turn a former parking lot right next to the Vancouver Art Gallery into a bustling community space. You may have heard of it — it’s now the space we call Robson Square. King, director Susan Chung and facilitators Veronika Bylicki and Tessica Truong helped students form ideas on the future of their outdoor classroom. The classroom is expected to cost about $75,000. A Whistler Blackcomb Foundation grant will cover about $41,200, while volunteer contributions, labour and additional funding sources will foot the rest of the bill.
