Harrison School is a Preschool to Year 10 school campus, with predominate enrolment of mainstream students and a substantial enrolment of students with disabilities and special needs, all of whom learn together in a supportive and inclusive environment.
The design continues the idea of the “village” complete with its “square” and “streets”. The idea of a “rite of passage” is inherent in the design philosophy of the Masterplan. This idea is an important concept for a Preschool to Year 10 school campus, since a student would start and complete the majority of their education on the one site. Thus the experience a student has on this campus needs to reinforce their development from early childhood to later adolescence.
