The Mechai Learning Commons Philosophy

We believe the our learning commons is a community space that serves as a place for ideas, reflection, collboration and interaction to promote learning. It is an environment where both print and digital literacy are used to provoke inquiry, extend curiosity and enrich imagination.


Our learning commons is a welcoming and engaging central hub that connects our multilingual community.
