The designs for Victoria’s first-ever ‘vertical school’ in South Melbourne, have been released, providing a sneak peek into the revolutionary learning spaces that will accommodate over 525 students. The most exciting facet of the vertical schools model is the community reach (pardon the pun)
“The school will also offer the community an array of public spaces to be enjoyed by students and locals alike, remaining open after-hours to encourage community interaction and providing spaces that are both community-based and also shared with the school.”
Whether the school spreads up or out, the factors that influence positive outcomes are the leadership, teachers, pedagogy and the ability to listen to the needs of the community.
