Project Profile: Lord Nelson Elementary School

Natural Pod had the recent pleasure of supporting Lord Nelson Elementary School in Vancouver, Canada. The school has just undergone a full seismic upgrade due to having been in operation since 1911. It was a big project and the finished result is not only beautiful but really reflects the schools’ vision and values.

Lord Nelson places great importance on creating a strong sense of community belonging, and you can feel that wherever you go in the school. They have a diverse and dynamic community with students representative of a variety of ethnic backgrounds and parents that are very actively involved in the school. This has created a very strong, family-focused neighbourhood in Vancouver.

The community also values an intentional focus on environmental stewardship, which is reflected in their commitment to environment awareness through education and hands-on learning. The school has both a well-used outdoor classroom and project garden.

This is where Natural Pod has really been able to support their vision, by supplying environmentally responsible, sustainable learning furniture. Furniture that’s not only calming and welcoming and helps bring some of those benefits of being outside back into the classroom, but additionally creates a learning backdrop for environmental education. Our products encourage children to ask themselves important environmental questions, such as… What is it made from? Where did it come from? Who made it? What else can it be? 

Here are some photos of the lovely re-fitted space at Lord Nelson Elementary School, Vancouver, Canada.
