Trinity students love their treehouse classrooms

THIRTY years after it first opened, Trinity College has undergone its first major facelift with the creation of middle school treehouse classrooms.

Six new classrooms, five nest areas, an undercover area and a suite of new technology resources make up the upgrades.

Trinity applied for and won a Block Grant Authority, which is state and federally funded.

Works started in the middle of 2014 and were completed two weeks ago.

"It is quite significant because it is the first purpose-built structure we've had since we established," principal Trish Hodgson said.

"They are all double-roomed classrooms with lots of space."

Mrs Hodgson said Year 7 and 8 students couldn't get enough of their new facilities.

"We have that indoor, outdoor learning flow now," she said. "The kids love the nest areas, they roll around in the fake grass."

The nests are shaded areas with timber benches and a table.

The official launch date of the treehouse classrooms is in August.
