Collingwood Collegiate Institute had a classroom that was sitting empty and unused
for the most part. The students had a vision of creating a space that the entire school
could access to use as a collaborative learning centre. Their vision became a reality
after they were selected as the winners of the Extreme Classroom Makeover.
Together with our vendor partners, 3M, Newell, and Safco, we transformed the
classroom into a creative and collaborative learning space, filled with all new state
of the art furniture and accessories. Safco provided all new sit-stand desks and
chairs, stools, brightly coloured chairs and Safco® Zenergytm Ball Chairs. 3M filled
the classroom with all new learning essentials, including emoji Post-its®, Scotch®
Globe Tape Dispenser, and the new Post-it® Dry Erase Surface for all the desks and
table tops, a very popular feature with the students. Newell Office Brands gifted the
students with boxes full of writing tools and fun classroom accessories, like the Expo®
2-in-1 Low Odour Markers, Elmer’s Glue, Sharpie® Highlighters and so much more.
