With a new building project about to start on-site, Year 4/5 students at Saint David’s Parish School have been busy using the real building experience to explore what makes a really great learning space.

Students have been working with local architects and engineers who have assisted them with interpreting architectural building plans. They have been conducting research into suitable materials and furniture and with some design inspiration thanks to donations of material samples and products from local businesses, have created their own furniture designs for an educational environment. Students used the online program Tinkercad to create their designs and brought the prototypes to life using a 3D printer.

Year 4/5 students have also been busy fitting out floorplan models, creating furniture in proportion to the space, creating logos, designing business cards and writing a pitch proposal in the lead up to their Learning Expo - which was held on Thursday 16 August 2018.

Our focus on recycling made the press in 2016  when our students strutted their stuff on the runway in outfits made from waste materials as a way of promoting reducing, reusing and recycling.
