Endeavour has four learning communities, each one featuring central tiered seats, a stage, open learning areas and a wet/tech area. The school’s been cleverly designed with no front of classroom, facilitating instructional, collaborative and independent learning in equal amounts. This idea is summed up by another central pillar of the school’s philosophy, ‘learning without limits’.
Collaboration is a significant feature of Endeavour’s teaching philosophy and the furniture had to bring that to life. Principal, Marcus Freke describes it as the furniture having to cater to multiple learning and teaching styles, encouraging children to work together. He and his team wanted the learning spaces to be easily reconfigured to define certain learning environments within the larger space.
Endeavour is an impressive example of collaborative planning and learning.
