Tenison Woods College students are embracing their brand-new Reception MacKillop Learning Community. Seventy-three students have started their educational journey in a state-of-the-art facility, boasting five open classrooms with breakout and meeting rooms, a large creative maker studio, two unique learning pods, as well as a spacious sensory room.
The Reception building is the latest addition to the college, following many developments over the course of 2020, including the construction of the Middle School Gilap Wanga Learning Community and the Poplars Inclusive Education Centre.
Renovations were also made to the Out of School Hours Care Centre and a substantial extension to the Early Learning and Community Centre. A college spokesperson said the renovations and buildings were the result of a “very collaborative approach to designing spaces which accentuate child competency and agency, as well as teacher collaboration”.
“Tenison Woods College also looks forward to continuing the planning of the Junior School (Year 1-6) building, which will start at the conclusion of 2021, ready for occupation in 2023,” the spokesperson said.
