Developing flexible learning spaces that are complemented by purposefully designed areas
ensures Te Kowhai School is absolutely supporting their school-wide vision for teaching and learning.
This vision is designed to equip its learners for their future through teaching and learning that engages them as individuals rather than a collective. Principal Tony Grey is clear about how the furniture has played a part in this vision. “We formed a very clear ‘who’ and ‘why’…the spaces became just a ‘what’.”
Tony observes the practical application of the ‘what’, noting “Spaces that support collaboration, quiet reflective time, communication, self-management and creativity cannot be achieved with students sitting in one place all day every day!”
Tony Grey - Principal at Te Kowhai School.
While junior students at Te Kowhai are enjoying a new purpose-built learning space, older students are also benefitting from some refurbishments to their traditional classrooms. Rooms have been opened up to create a much larger space and allow for collaboration. Te Kowhai’s new spaces show a commitment to their values. They afford connectivity and collaboration and the benefits are immediately obvious – happier, more engaged learners.
When asked to choose his favourite feature within the space now, his reply is succinct; “Hmmm…all of it! We would replicate the same design in a heartbeat, such is its success.”
