Case Studies

Te Uho o te Nikau School

Principal Mel Bland discusses changes in pedagogy and how furniture has become more flexible in order to accommodate this.

"Woods were really helpful and collaborated with us. They presented us with a package and then we negotiated, over several meetings, until we came up with what we believed would meet our school’s vision – what would be functional, what would help kids learn, what would help teachers teach. Woods supported that whole journey."

Christchurch Boys' High School

When Christchurch Boys' High School needed to create 67 new learning spaces, DP Craig Dunnett undertook a five year process to make sure they got it right. With DuraTough tops throughout, he is confident they made the right decision.

"In two years' time I will have to furnish another 20 - 25 classrooms in the main block. I'll definitely use Woods Furniture again. The product is so good, the students love it, and it lasts forever. The DuraTough top is a game-changer, and at the moment, there's nothing else like it on the market.."
