Alfriston College has been purpose-designed and built to meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s learners.
A key feature of the five Whānau buildings is their flexibility. Learning spaces have ‘operable’ walls (walls that move) allowing the size of learning spaces to change to accommodate the learning that is happening.
All spaces have immediate access to WIFI to facilitate BYOD. All learning spaces are equipped with data projectors. Classrooms are bright and designed to use as much natural light as possible. Furniture is designed and used to enhance collaborative learning opportunities and to cater to different learning needs.
Approximately 25% of learning in a school happens outside the classroom. Learners learn about justice and equity from the values demonstrated everyday. They also learn important skills about how organisations operate and make decisions. With this in mind, Alfriston College is designed with the vision of the school as a theme park, where the theme is learning. The following examples illustrate some of the ways which Alfriston College school buildings and grounds have been used as tools for learning:
