We started receiving our new furniture last Friday. Kinder and Year 1 now have their new furniture. Years 2 and 3 will have theirs delivered this Friday. This is hugely exciting for our students.
The new furniture provides various seating and gathering opportunities for the students. This is directly in line with the refurbishment practices in Catholic, State and Independent schools to have their learning environments suited to kids and not the other way around as has been the case for many years.
Over the next few weeks, the rest of the school furniture will also be replaced. I will share with you images from the new spaces as they are set up. BFX is a well-known educational furniture design and supply company. They have several articles here that are easy to read about improvements in classroom design.
Here is a picture of the classroom design that we continue to move away from towards a design that is student-centred.
With appreciaition for your ongoing support,
