Modular School Offers Space for Five New Groups
The Heideschule in Schwerte is a two-form entry community school and, as an all-day school, offers care for pupils until 4:00 p.m. if desired. Due to increasing pupil numbers, regular school operations could only be ensured by using rooms provisionally. Therefore, the school's sponsor, Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V., decided to expand the Heideschule with a new building.
Important educational goals of the Heideschule are the promotion of independence, teamwork, tolerance, integration of children with disabilities, dealing with new media, nature and environmental awareness and the organisation of leisure time in the form of sports, music, dance and games.
In the area of the entrance and the connecting wing, a rear-ventilated HPL façade in a strong red tone with an antigraffiti coating was chosen, which forms a fresh colour and material contrast to the wooden façade.
