We really enjoyed working with Lisa, the Principal at Arohena School. Her vision was to bridge the gap between preschool and junior school by developing a more playful environment for her youngest students. She had such great ideas and a clear vision for what she wanted, we were delighted to assist.

Inspired by Arohena’s rural farmland setting we created a barn style house with a platform on wheels to be used as a playhouse or stage. Comfortable learning stations for the children and spaces for quiet learning included bench seats and a great tunnel seats.

We loved working with Lisa to bring her visions to life in the classroom.

Elinor / Starex

We engaged Starex to begin our refurbishment of our junior school space.  They were keen to implement our vision to have sustainable and practical pieces that could be used in multiple ways.  Nothing was too much trouble and they were happy to make changes throughout the process. Our furniture from Starex is amazing and the kids love being in their space every day.  People that visit our school always comment positively about our space too. The team at Starex were a pleasure to deal with and I love that we could purchase from a small, family business.
