Indoor & Outdoor Classrooms
Classrooms, particularly in the Early Years, are laid out in a circular fashion around common green and outdoor spaces, allowing for hands-on learning about our world and the environment, creating the type of social, collaborative learning space that is proven to increase student engagement. Outdoor areas, designed to utilise sustainable cooling methods, allow all students to enjoy as many days outside as possible. Outdoor learning for group projects, class projects and social learning facilities are supported by optimisation of organic plantation and greenery.
Modular, ergonomic furniture creates dynamic interiors within classrooms, allowing for student movement, with exercise balls and standing desks offering an alternative to traditional desks and chairs.
Learning Hubs, Research Workshops and Makerspaces
With a focus on collaborative learning, communal workspaces and learning hubs become energetic places where students gather to exchange ideas, utilize technology and conduct research.
Our campus includes eleven research workshops, comprising laboratories for both Science and Food that act as a core educational development space. Fairgreen’s laboratories also include makerspaces, equipped with 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, allowing students to create, invent and learn, engaging in the ‘Five E’s of Engineering’: Engagement, Exploration, Explanation, Elaboration, Evaluation.
Music and Art rooms for academic and extracurricular arts are designed to celebrate student creativity, and serve students through galleries and performance spaces. Our multi-purpose hall converts into a 440-seat auditorium furnished with light and sound equipment for theatrical performances.
Fairgreen’s campus is an integral part of The Sustainable City’s stimulating environment and is interconnected with its other components, making use of the city’s many unique facilities to provide students with hands-on learning experiences at the school’s doorstep.
The Fairgreen Health, Wellness and Learning Centre, founded and led by Stephen Ritz, is located in one of the city’s spacious bio-domes and is dedicated to exploration and experimentation. Here students receive first-hand experience of cutting-edge 21st century indoor farming technologies which allow us to grow food throughout the year, protect crops from unpredictable weather, and even eliminate the use of pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. The Centre’s farm-to-table approach, integrated with STEM and experiential learning, will teach students about how food is grown and how to create healthy, nutritious meals using locally grown and sustainably sourced ingredients.
Students can also access the city’s two Innovation Centres and learn from leading global educators, scientists and researchers.
