The Primary Learning Village places curiosity, community and colour at the forefront of its design.
What originated as a simple refurbishment of existing primary classrooms evolved naturally into a larger modernisation project of the existing Primary precinct, following comprehensive briefing between College stakeholders, McLellan Bush Architects (MBA), and specialist consultants.
The transparency and operability of the learning environments encourage the sharing of ideas, teaching and learning and evokes a sense of belonging for students and staff. These spaces are enhanced by adjacent seating nooks and amphitheatre spaces that assist in re-engaging the child through a change of environment and varying sensation of materials and colour environment.
The ability for classes to break out into a flexible learning area together and for two adjacent classes to directly combine fosters a strong sense of community between the Primary Learning Village’s occupants. Here, it does take a Village to raise a child.
