Creative Arts Centre
The Creative Arts Centre provides a nurturing learning environment that enables many of our children to develop their full potential. It consists of a large central Possibility Space equipped with lighting bars and supported by a media studio.
Adjacent to the Creative Arts Centre is the Tagliaferro Gallery for exhibiting art and other events plus an enclosed courtyard that includes an outdoor performance space.
Additionally there is a huge kitchen for teaching purposes, a physical education and therapy centre to develop children's gross motor skills.
Physical Education and Therapy
Both physical education and occupational therapy take place in the possibility space with its sprung floor, large weight-bearing hooks in the ceiling for hanging equipment such as hammocks and swings.
Various equipment needed including softly items for climbing and exercising are kept in a large equipment store.
External Performance Space
The enclosed courtyard, adjacent to the Creative Arts Centre, provides an outdoor performance with a small amphitheatre.
The amphitheatre is surrounded by seating and a circular ramp for actors and performers creating a higher level stage and an alternative entrance/exit.
The courtyard will eventually contain gardens for students' to grow vegetables for their cook and eat classes.
