Baringa Special School

 

Baringa Special School is the only special school in the Gippsland Region which caters for students diagnosed with a mild intellectual disability. Haskell Architects is proposing to construct a new learning block including general purpose classrooms and a multipurpose hall, as well as a new junior landscape play area.

The architectural design for the learning block is driven by the way the students most effectively learn and how the school operates. Each classroom has the access to individual withdrawal rooms as well as outdoor learning spaces, which act as transition zones between the classroom and the general play area.
