The new building of classrooms at Mary Immaculate Primary School at Eagle Vale has been described as “Bold, vibrant and stylish”. But the real wow factor is inside, where an abundance of colour, light, space and flexible learning resources make for an outstanding contemporary student facility.
The building is ergonomically designed with a variety of features that allow for a more pleasant teaching and learning environment. This included the use of large louvre windows for generous natural light and ventilation – Elements which have also been scientifically proven to benefit learning retention and concentration levels.
Louvre windows provide the benefit of maximum airflow with up to 86% free air when fully open as opposed to other window styles such as awnings which only achieve around 14%.
Third party testing carried out has also proved that Safetyline Jalousie louvres windows have a much higher air-tightness figure than generic glass louvres and therefore can increase a building’s air tightness by up to 20%. This results in greater control of thermal comfort during cooler weather conditions and when heating is being used.
Both students and teachers are enjoying their learning spaces which were designed by Alleanza Architecture for fantastic twenty first century teaching and learning.
When the students were asked what they liked the most about their new classroom environment? Annabelle from Kindergarten said “It has lots of space to show all our work”. Mia from year 3 liked that it was “Nice and colourful”. But, our favourite response was from her classmate Charlotte who added “I love the long windows”.
