Take a tour in this architect's fly through.
Next generation teaching and learning
At the core of the junior school architectural design are three buildings, one each for Years K to 2, 3 to 4 and 5 to 6. Flexible learning spaces flow into seven neighbourhoods - one for each year level - with a seamless transition onto landscaped gardens and terraces. Friendships can flourish in separate, secure and age appropriate outdoor play zones for each stage.
During the last four years the school has transformed its learning culture and implemented Harvard Education’s Teaching for Understanding Framework.This new facility will allow teachers to revolutionise teaching and learning.
Student centred learning environment
Next generation learning has driven every design decision for this new facility, resulting in a learning environment centred on students rather than classrooms. Adaptable furniture and learning spaces will give teachers the flexibility to facilitate individual focus, group projects and grade workshops according to different learning intentions and learning styles.
Each of the facility’s thirty light filled learning spaces will be fitted with cutting edge technological enhancements to individualise learning and connect students in exciting and absorbing real world scenarios.
All students will benefit as the project includes an outdoor junior assembly area, that will also serve as a sports grandstand and amenities, plus conversion of existing K to 2 rooms for senior school use.
Construction of the new junior school
Construction commenced in June 2019 and the new facility will be operational at the start of the 2021 school year. This image updates regularly so you can see how the building work is progressing.
