Following severe flood damage in 2020, Tauhara College in Taupo, New Zealand
finds the silver lining and shows how innovation and creativity can emerge from adversity.
Ben Hancock - Principal, Tauhara College
With that in mind, the team at Furnware came up with practical furniture solutions and spatial planning concepts for creative and flexible spaces, ensuring all the classroom furniture was moveable, so students can easily rearrange their furniture to suit each lesson.
"Students spend a lot of time in their new STEAM Centre. They like having comfortable furniture options and technology tailored to their needs. The whiteboard tables are particularly popular as students enjoy drawing, brainstorming and working in groups on them", says James Lamb, STEAM Teacher.
Principal Ben, who was a student at this college back in 1993, says, “With the removal of the old will come the building of the new. There's a sense of optimism that Tauhara College will finally get the buildings that the community and students deserve."
As the school continues to explore the progressive pedagogical approach to learning, Furnware will be their trusted partner and support their goal with flexible and innovative furniture solutions. We look forward to revisiting this secondary school as they gear up to move into new permanent learning spaces.
