Fresh, Practical, Simple

The growing community of Rolleston’s newest school, Te Rohutu Whio School, is built on the foundations of Aroha ki te tangata, aroha ki te whenua, aroha ki te reo – “love to the people, love to the land, love to the language”.

This deep respect for people and place is evident from the way the school and its grounds have been constructed right through to the curriculum and way of teaching, which seeks to encourage passion-based learning and nurture the wellbeing of each child.

Urban Effects was extremely proud to be a part of the creation of school grounds which support students to learn, eat and play together.

A selection of seating, benches and table settings from our range of New Zealand made furniture have been positioned throughout the school’s expansive outdoor areas. The table settings and seating solutions feature the natural look and feel of timber and the three must-have ingredients for every contemporary learning environment – versatility, comfort and practical durability.

Long, strong and sturdy Bazils Beam Benches and Kiwi Benches provide ample seating alongside an array of multi-purpose sports courts and spaces designed to entice students to interact and engage in active play and exercise. While custom made, tiered Cola seating completes a covered area purpose-built for students to gather in-between classes; and all-in-one Kiwi Classic Table Settings offer students even more options for places to meet, eat and study while they get some Vitamin D and fresh air.
