CEFPI invites members and friends to tour the recycled buildings at Fairhills Primary School and participate in a discussion on how innovative and lateral design thinking can stretch a budget, create a new school identity and drive pedagogical change.


2014 winner of the CEFPI Victoria Renovation/Modernisation award, Fairhills Primary School has recently undergone a whole school refurbishment to re-energise educational opportunities for students.


This $4M project has created learning neighbourhoods that allow teachers to lead learning activities in active hubs and focused think tank spaces. New outdoor learning decks have been introduced, and the school has a new central linking spine – The Core – that houses resource materials and provides meeting space, presentation areas and quiet study alcoves. This has refreshed the learning spaces of past decades to embrace current pedagogy.


Hear from designers, MINX Architecture, and school representatives as they talk about the educational objectives, design drivers and project impact.
