5, 6, 7, 8 program proposes advancements for students in the Wodonga region of Victoria in Grades 5 through to 8, who are not academically prepared for the transition into secondary schooling. Through the use of place based learning as a catalyst to develop catered learning environments that are for the locality instead of following the footsteps of mainstream education. The project develops the students’ core subjects from their current educational facilities, agriculture and design make.
The project is only heightened in the built form by deconstructing the average portable school building to formulate a flat pack school system. This not only changes the use of the temporary to permanent school portable but allows for low costing, mobile and unique designs that rural localities are able to develop based on their necessities. This project advances educational facilities for rural localities by developing the already existing to advance the disparities between metropolitan and rural education.
