Design your dream city school

26 Apr 2016

What does your dream city school look like?

Local lobby group City Schools 4 City Kids is running a “Design your Dream City School” competition this month.

The Docklands-based group, which is campaigning for a public primary and secondary school for local families, is calling for submissions from the community.

“We invite young and old, budding architects or retired ones to use whatever materials you like to design your dream school for Docklands,” City Schools 4 City Kids co-founder Michelle Styles said.

Build it with Lego, design it on your computer, draw it, make it out of cardboard or build it with play-dough. The only limit is your imagination.

The group says one of the aims of the competition is to highlight that key decision makers should embrace community feedback about educational infrastucture.

Given inner-city residents live in vertical homes, they have a strong working knowledge about what does and doesn’t work, the group says.

“We hope this competition will make them (the children) smile, get them excited and get the decision makers to start visualising a school for the city,” City Schools 4 City Kids co-founder Denise Fung-Henderson said.

Send a photo of your design for a dream city school to (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or post on Facebook or Instagram and tag #cityschools4citykids.

The competition opens on May 1 and entries will be accepted until May 31. Prizes will be awarded in four categories: early learning, primary, secondary and open.

The entries will be judged by leading architects and planners and prizes will be awarded in June.

The winning entries will be published in Docklands News and on the City Schools 4 City Kids website and Facebook page.
