"We now have community coming in before school and teaching students basketball skills, strengthening our community ties. The covered in area is well utilised during the day and is used for a variety of learning contexts."

Kimihia School

Creating outdoor learning environments

Located in a semi-rural setting on the east side of Huntly is Kimihia School. Founded in 1897, the school is at the heart of the local community.

The school approached Shade Systems with a common problem. They wanted to know how to utilise an outside court area to create additional space for teaching, sports and activities. So the design team at Shade Systems proposed a Covered Outdoor Learning Area (COLA) solution.

Now the students and teachers can hold assemblies for the entire school as well as playing sports in the wet weather.
