Galilee Catholic Learning Community, Stage 1

Introduction


The main focus of this new elementary school which opened at Aldinga, South Australia, in 2007 was to break down old patterns of teaching, instead allowing students to learn how to learn. It is based on the principles of life-long learning and strength in community.

Stage One of the project has included carparking, a retention dam and swale and the first of the Learning Community spaces; including both internal and external learning areas. A large light-filled Shared Space, four smaller Learning Spaces and ancillary rooms make up the interior of this Stage One Learning Community. A range of external learning spaces surround the development, including wide verandahs, an almond orchard and a sand dune mound.
