It is exciting to see the Novum-designed Ohana College nearing completion on site!
We are delighted to be working with Ohana College and Rohrig once again to deliver Stage 2 of the school’s brand new campus! Stage 1 of the campus was opened in early 2023 and Stage 2 will provide additional learning areas, kitchen, dining room, multi-purpose space, student services spaces, and a covered sports court.
Located in Logan, Queensland, Ohana College is a Special Assistance School that prides itself on providing tailored education and wellbeing programs for students with diverse learning, psychological and physical needs. The school environment, staffing, pedagogical practices, and curriculum are all designed for students with complex needs that make their participation in mainstream schooling a challenge.
The new campus features learning areas designed for smaller class sizes and breakout and withdrawal areas that allow for tailored social-emotional wellbeing and learning support. Acoustic and visual stimuli are controlled to provide opportunities for socialisation and collaborative learning while also managing possible behavioural triggers. Withdrawal spaces (affectionately referred to as “caves”) are designed to provide respite for students when needed.
