Flexi-Space opens up learning opportunities
A NEW $200,000 learning space for high school students will see them excelling further with their learning as Mareeba State High School opens up a Flexi- space room.
The new facility on the western side of X Block began construction at the beginning of the year, with hopes to encourage students to take that extra step in their academic goals.
Although the space will be on trial for only Grade 8 students for the first few months, principal Scott Whybird believes it will not only benefit students in all age groups and in all areas of learning.
“It will be used for regular subjects like math and English but just gives a bit of change in environment so we can help figure out how to help these students aim higher,” he said.
“Flexi-Space won’t particularly target low ability students so there will be a multilevel of students in the classroom that we want push just that little bit harder.
“This purpose-built facility has a combination of an outdoor and indoor area as well a toilet for anyone using the space for students and their parents to use when they visit the space.”
Mareeba State High School is currently undergoing a raft of different renovations to help improve facilities across the school.
