We need your help – Tubs in the Hubs

Posted on May 4, 2023

We need your assistance…

Help us fill the Tubs in the Hubs (Innovation Precinct Possibility Hub prototyping and product making material tubs)

Have you seen the new Innovation Precinct? It’s wonderful to have students working, designing, and learning in this space. The Innovation Precinct features two Possibility Hub areas. These spaces have been designed to support students’ creative thinking and the prototyping and product-making process of bringing ideas to life across all year levels from Pre-Prep to Year 12 and across all subjects.


We need your help. We need to fill the tubs in the Possibility Hub with items for prototyping and product making. We are looking for items that others might consider waste or by-products of the manufacturing process.

“What you think of as waste, the children see as an opportunity to create something whilst learning.”

Below is a list of possible types of items we are looking for:

These can be dropped off at the Innovation Precinct between 7:30am – 4:30pm Monday to Thursday and 7:30am – 3:30pm Friday.


  • Assorted large cardboard tubes (no toilet rolls, please)
  • Corrugated cardboard (varying sizes & thicknesses)
