Upgrades are taking place in schools across Canberra.
At Black Mountain School, staff and students are benefiting from new outdoor learning spaces and a new sensory room as well as a new bathroom and kitchen.
Black Mountain School caters for students with a disability in years 7-12 from the northside of Canberra.
One of the high support needs classrooms was recently renovated. The enhancements include:
- the installation of electronic hoist infrastructure
- a five-zoned Bluetooth sound system
- sensory room
- moderated lighting
- new glazing
- the star of the renovation, a new hoist which supports safer lifting and more flexible use of the space. This will provide more time for student therapeutic intervention activities.
The outdoor space (pictured) along with the recently upgraded Six Degrees Café and Gallery provides students an opportunity to explore pathways to training and help create employment opportunities for young people with a disability.
