A New Start for Kaikohe
The rebuild of Northland College is more than just a new building - it's a whole new start for the students and Kaikohe. The building includes 21 inter-connected spaces, including a gym, a whare which can double as a hall or be split into learning spaces, a dance studio, art and IT areas, labs, and a kitchen. Bifold doors can be opened up to create a few large spaces or closed to create hubs for small groups. It's all about flexible learning, and instead of having a teacher dispensing knowledge from the front of the classroom, students and teachers will work together, using digital devices in different-sized groups. It's an exciting step towards a more dynamic and engaging learning environment for Northland College students.
