Fast forward to 2018 and Silverdale Primary School’s roll is rapidly heading towards 700 students, requiring the construction of a new two-story, four-room building for Years 5 and 6 and Years 3 and 4. With four years’ experience in ILEs, there is a deep understanding amongst students and teachers about what works in the design of new learning environments. As Principal Cameron Lockie explains, “it’s about teachers choosing what furniture best suits them, because different teachers have different teaching styles that require different furniture. The school used what they purchased in 2015 as a benchmark. “We did have some other furniture from other companies, but they haven’t really lasted the time like Furnware furniture did,” says Cameron.
