Welcome to the world that is Tintern Grammar.


Home / Junior Schools  / Junior School Furniture Trial

As teaching and learning evolves so do the requirements of the modern learning environment, and with this in mind, we are pleased to share that SebelFurniture invited Tintern Grammar to participate in an exciting classroom furniture trial.

I worked with Sebel to design a classroom with furniture that is flexible, versatile, and comfortable, and will aid in facilitating 21st century teaching and learning. The final design incorporates a mix of tables and seating with differing heights, and informal and formal furniture. This design will allow students to move about the classroom and re-arrange the furniture to suit the activity they are engaged in. There will be opportunities for all Junior School students to experience the classroom design.

The overall aim of the trial is to create a space that increases student engagement, encourages collaboration and inspires students to learn. From time to time Sebel will visit the classroom to gather feedback from students and teachers on how the furniture is working. We will also share feedback with the School community as well.
