What does the perfect classroom look like? We’ve teamed up with Woods Furniture to challenge your students to design the best space for their learning – and maybe see it created for real!

Using its free app, Space Planner, they can visually plan and configure their classroom. Select the furniture and layout that will enhance the learning experience, save and send us the result. There are two categories to choose from:

  • Primary (Years 1-8)
  • Secondary (Years 9-13)

Win a $5000 classroom makeover!

Each category winner will receive an INTERFACE goodie bag for the class. One will be selected to get an awesome classroom makeover, up to the value of $5,000, courtesy of Woods Furniture.
