The journey for the photos depict the full transition of the campus from tired to newer modern learning spaces.
The junior classroom block upgrade.
Three old dark and uninviting classrooms that were connected via toilets and bag bay areas were reconfigured with toilets and bag bays turned into transparent breakout spaces with visual access through the three classrooms.
The hard materials room upgrade.
Modernisation of this tired room was achieved with refurbishment of the room in general and installation of a new extraction unit with ducting hidden in the lowered ceiling which also incorporated new sound absorption materials, insulation and more efficient lighting and heating.
