A SCHOOL has unveiled a £14,000 room which brings learning to life by stimulating all the senses.
West Kirby Residential School is behind the venture.
The school caters for pupils aged five to 19 with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
And now at the school’s heart is a new room known as ‘Oasis.’
The multi-sensory room is full of interactive equipment which stimulates sight, touch, sound and even smells.
The school hopes the room will be a relaxing part of the building.
But staff also hope the therapeutic environment will help pupils thrive in their studies.
The room is home to an array of different lighting effects such as funky elaborate fibre optics and bubble tubes to stimulate sight.
It also has a ‘twinkle ceiling ‘ with a series of changing lights embedded into tiles.
Perhaps the most impressive part of the room though is an interactive wall.
Known as Paletto the wall is able to pipe 64 different sounds.
At any one time staff or pupils can press one of eight buttons set to a different theme.
Topics range from sounds of nature and animals to the sound of showers and a flushing toilet which could complement a project about hygiene.
Staff can also record their own sounds or narrative to fit the lesson.
