Ormiston Junior College

The hub

Ormiston Junior is based in Flat Bush Auckland and is part of the Ormiston Campus which is made up of three schools, the other two being Ormiston Senior College and Ormiston Primary.

In January 2017, the newly constructed Junior College was opened. This 10,000 square metre school caters for years 7 to 10 and has a final roll capacity of 1130 students. In the centre of the school is an internal courtyard that is a multi-purpose space… a learning area and a school gathering space, this courtyard provides a central hub and a focus for the internal learning commons. Knowing the importance of providing shade for the people of Ormiston Junior, Hawkins Construction who built the complex got in contact with Shade Systems.

With a love of outdoor learning, Shade Systems were pleased to erect seven Modular Hypar Shade Sails in this courtyard area. Not only do these shades provide much needed UV blocks for the students, they also add an artistic vibe to the central hub at Ormiston Junior College.
