Students designing new learning spaces
Throughout 2019, the school had extensive renovations across the school, with all 16 classrooms refurbished and rejuvenation of outdoor learning areas.
Staff and students identified two large spaces that were being underutilised for learning: the library and original hall.
The school engaged learners in the process of redesigning these spaces to suit the student-centred and collaborative learning pedagogies that engage students in their learning every day.
"Students took on the role of designers and architects to restructure the learning areas, so they would allow all students to use each of the eight learning modes in isolation, or in a multimodal manner.”
