Welcome to our
Built in 2014 to accommodate Year Seven students as part of the state government initiative to migrate year seven into high school, the Kimberley College Flexible Learning Area has been designed to foster the College’s progressive teaching philosophy that learning is achieved through curriculum teaching, student collaboration and engagement with the surrounding environment.
The Middle School's Flexible Learning Area combines four adaptable indoor learning spaces with flexible outdoor spaces, large enough for full class groups, giving students many varied opportunites for interaction, performance, collaboration and connection to nature.
The Middle School's Flexible Learning Area includes four flexible double learning areas, associated teachers' offices, small group rooms, storage areas and ancillary workrooms.
Lawn areas are kept to a minimum leaving extensive mulch areas that are planted with plants indigenous to the site. The only lawn area is centrally located and addresses an outdoor timber stage which is used by students for performance and presentations.
The large eucalypts that needed to be felled when building the Middle School buildings were sawn into large timber seats and arranged to create outdoor classroom areas and social spots for students
Architects employed a variety of sustainability principles to create a stimulating learning environment with minimal ecological impact.
The outdoor learning areas' encourage social interaction, performance and a connection with nature.
Built from locally sourced materials where possible, the Middle School Learning Areas' feature lots of timber decking for extra outdoor learning spaces.
