The Outdoor Classroom located at Capel Manor is dedicated to children and young people and used as a base for school children on organised visits to the college and grounds. The garden is also open to the public when not in use as a classroom. The Outdoor Classroom offers many opportunities to learn about horticulture, ecology, horticulture, science, wildlife and weather conditions whilst offering inspiration for photography and art. Most importantly the garden offers fun for all ages.

The inspiration and concept of the garden comes form discussions between London Borough of Enfield and Capel Manor College. The garden seeks to be an exemplar for teachers, architects, engineers, planners, governing body members and others concerned with improving school sites and encouraging green innovation.

VolkerFitzpatrick and VolkerHighways through their sponsorship has brought from a concept to living a environment this unique green space and learning experience which will evolve over many years

Ceci est un aperçu de Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
