Flexible Learning Spaces

The Way Forward in Learning Environments

When you take a tour around Waikerie Lutheran Primary School, you may be surprised by the set- up of the classrooms. Gone are the traditional rows of student desks facing the whiteboard and in their place are a range of innovative and flexible learning spaces.

The layout and design of each classroom incorporates a number of different learning spaces which provide children with the opportunity to find a space that suits their learning needs.

In each classroom there is a space dedicated to collaborative work, individual work spaces as well as quiet retreat spaces. The structure of these work areas can range from low desks to high tables catering for children who like to sit on the ground to work or stand up.

This year the library has been relocated to a room with the Music and Indonesian Room next door. These 2 rooms are separated by a dividing wall which can be folded away to allow for greater opportunities for students to use the library area for silent reading, have structured library lessons as well as being able to spread out for collaborative work and research. This will be particularly useful for the students in our Upper Primary Classes as they prepare for their Exhibition in Term 4.

We invite you to come and have a look around our school and see how flexible learning spaces are changing the way in which our students learn for the better
