Our Lady of the Missions (OLM) East Renfrewshire

How do you build a culture of collaboration? 

Our Lady of the Missions (OLM) wanted to innovate how they teach within their existing buildings. There is a lot of pressure on all spaces. There is also a need for better experience in STEM, arts and social spaces. 

OLM is re-imagining the possibilities of their existing spaces. Pupils and teachers worked together to create a strategy. The pupils helped test the plans through a space-hack – building and testing models in cardboard. The pupils then worked with a designer to create furniture. They drew inspiration for parents and grandparents and included classic board-games.  

The school has built a culture of collaboration. They are taking on their own projects to keep making better use of their spaces.
