By order of the GO! education of the Flemish Community, ABETEC, Osk-ar, construction company Dethier and Grasland have designed a new building for the campus of the Royal Atheneum in Tervuren.

In a first phase, which has now been completed, the new building was fully realised. The new building includes a school for the third grade of primary education and the first grade of secondary education.

In the second phase, which is currently in progress, the classrooms of the existing primary school and the multifunctional hall will be renovated, as well as the surrounding area. We are increasing mobility on the campus and maximising safety by separating the various target groups (pedestrians, cyclists, mopeds, cars, etc.).

The pupils in the new building will not be housed in fixed classes, but in various learning units. These units are open spaces, with flexible learning and instruction areas for small groups, inviting gathering places and small areas for concentration work and discussion that are used depending on the learning situation. Traditional classrooms along corridors have thus been replaced by open, accessible spaces for listening, exploring, tinkering, doing experiments, working in silence, working in groups, etc.

Our aim: an inspiring, inquisitive and motivating environment tailored to each child/young person. Each pupil must be challenged and stimulated to discover and strengthen his or her talents.

The end of all works is planned for August 2022!
