Project Profile: Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School
Natural Pod is all about collaboration, so we love it when we get to collaborate with like minded schools, people and organizations. This project at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) was especially meaningful as their guiding principle when it comes to supporting the whole child, very much resonates with our own values; “Our school community reflects the pride of shared purpose and love of learning in a values-based environment, where each child is respected as an individual.”
Here is a wonderful excerpt from the Head of School – Mrs. Carol Grant-Watt.
“I can think of no higher priority than the future of our children, and my vision is that as a team at STS, we contribute to moving them forward in their journey towards their hopes, dreams, and goals. We will do so in a respectful manner, honouring the individuality and diversity of our community. As we prepare to deliver on a new strategic plan and inspire commitment, trust, and belief in our collective abilities to change the world for the better, I say to you, the future is bright.”
This collaboration between Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School and Natural Pod was a great success, and as you can see from the photos below it was stunning. The end result encompasses a blended furniture model between Natural Pod’s own natural, sustainable learning furniture and other very different styles of furniture, though they compliment each other very well.
We look forward to hearing what the students have to say about their amazing new learning spaces.
