Beyond conventional classrooms, the creation of spaces is conducive to diverse modes of learning. Outdoor Learning Areas, Practical Learning Spaces, and Break-out Collaborative Areas serve as dynamic extensions of the traditional classroom setting, enriching the educational experience. Staff Work Rooms strategically positioned in close proximity to General Learning Areas facilitate seamless coordination and collaboration among educators.

The design encompasses a mix of innovation and cost-effective solutions, which take into consideration the character of the adjacent buildings and school campus masterplan.
