    Learning Environments Australasia and the Department of Education Tasmania invite you to a free site visit to start a journey of exploring contemporary learning environments in the State.




    Join us to find out how South Hobart Primary School is transforming education models.
     
    Existing facilities have been redeveloped and new indoor and outdoor learning areas created to respond to the school’s desire for more versatile spaces, an increasing enrolment and a better representation of their identity.

    New and redeveloped indoor learning areas are left unencumbered for students and teachers to create their own changing environments. Large and small group areas are interlinked with visual connection balanced against the requirement for separate group activities when required.

    New outdoor spaces - learning, playing and gathering - are defined by the arc of the new building and created between existing buildings.

    The new buildings and outdoor spaces are designed to reflect the specific aspirations and identity of this school community, as articulated by students, staff and families.

    • 31 October 2018
    • 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM (UTC+10:30)
    • 18 Swallowcliffe Road, Davoren Park
    Register

    Come and see what a difference considered learning spaces supported by dedicated, passionate DECD staff can achieve for young children at the recently transformed Swallowcliffe P-7 School.

    Original building stock has been internally re-crafted to provide contemporary learning spaces with access to new outdoor learning areas. A new, dedicated STEM centre creates a striking street presence to reinforce Swallowcliffe as a school of choice, in addition to supporting stimulating and practical STEM focussed programs for a large number of children from challenging socio-economic backgrounds. The STEM Centre offers a new spatial solution to accommodate ‘hands-on’ projects through three highly flexible studios, supporting collaboration and creative thinking. The building symbolises this activity through an analogy of form inspired by origami; the act of folding paper by hand generates processes of learning, instruction, creation and crafting to produce a meaningful object of canopies, voids and drama from simple means. Patterned glazed brickwork at low level encourages tactile interaction and visual identity. High level semi-transparent polycarbonate cladding plays with natural light while low level glazing maintains visual connections to covered external testing spaces.
