Victorian School Design Awards 2017 - Best Primary School (finalist)

The new Morwell Central Primary School was created through the consolidation of three existing schools in the region onto one site. The School was developed to facilitate community connection and provide the culturally diverse Morwell Region with welcoming and inclusive learning environments to support the development of a strong community of learners.

Planned as separate Junior and Senior learning wings, intersecting at the central Administration and Resources Hub, the design features agile learning spaces at the children’s scale.

The design of the learning communities supports the School’s collaborative teaching and learning pedagogy, providing a diverse range of integrated learning spaces where students choose the mode of learning that best suits them in settings with strong indoor/outdoor links that support purposeful learning.
