Refreshing a Melbourne educational institution for the modern world

"Thank you all for your wonderful support...your teams have all made the process really easy so thank you!"

OVERVIEW

Mentone Grammar is the benchmark for outstanding co-education in Bayside Melbourne, servicing Early Learning through to Year 12.

With a vision is to develop resilient young people with a wide range of skills, interests and attributes necessary to take their places in a changing world, through a leading co-educational environment, which challenges and motivate students within a caring community. Promotion of school offering, through a compelling extracurricular program and a series of events that not only benefit the students but also showcasing community involvement.  

CHALLENGE

Through our collaboration with Digistorm, we created a user experience and visual aesthetic for Mentone Grammar’s new digital presence. Our primary objective, to digitally communicate the presence of community you experience even before you enter school grounds.

Many school's digital offerings, while presenting extensive information, and being functional from an elementary point of view, fail to meet today's stakeholder expectations, relevant information such as digital enrolment, curriculum dates, details, promotional and event detail requirements.

We needed the flexibility to grow with the digital presence along with the college and allow for new advancements in technology and structure.

SOLUTION

The key demographics and audiences are welcomed with a structure specifically tailored to their needs. An easy to follow the pathway through an interactive journey to discover the offerings and learnings of the school curriculum. Whether looking to inquire about enrolment or manage a current students affairs, the administrative and marketing activity of the school can be easily extended online.

The modular design of the website, utilises various unique assets, enabling growth and new application development on the forefront.

A carbon neutral studio

Carter's fine folk sit at recycled timber desks, type on keyboards powered by rechargeable batteries, walk on carpet made from recycled tyres and plastic bags. They breathe air created by an in-office garden and drink tea heated by an environmentally-friendly kettle. These ‘Digital HTTPsters’ hold meetings within a den of recycled paper accordion walls that weave throughout the studio.

When it’s time to leave, the crew grab their bags from upcycled lockers that once lived at a nearby AFL Club. They flick the switch on low-energy lights powered by 100% carbon-offset energy. Journeying home, they walk, ride and catch public transport.

Principal, James Noble, hand-crafted the furniture from recycled timber, layered and sealed using biodegradable glue. Now that’s commitment.
