BPCS is an independent community school in Wembley is a school that stands out from the crowd. It really is the school you wish you went to and where children thrive. At the end of the day, when we would meet to talk through designs and content, it was clear that the kids didn’t want to leave the grounds. Instead they wanted to play in the garden tunnels and climb the trees.
By all accounts they produce well-rounded and high achieving people—teaching them how to be good humans, not just how to do math – as we experienced first hand by hosting Jacob as a work experience kid for a few months as part of his study.
Despite initial concerns that we had not done a school website, it was clear we were all on the same page and we began our digital journey – which last night culminated in the presentation of a WA Web Award, which takes us to the national finals.
Here’s some screen captures of the site:
As you can expect, it needed to be a hands on approach with real photos and content that was produced by teachers and kids. We also got to speak to parents and be part of the greater community.
We really enjoyed working on this project and can’t wait to see if takes out the national Australian Web Award in its category. Watch this space.
