Recently I was invited to meet the staff of Westgate School in Pensacola, Florida, who are looking to refurbish their four amazing themed sensory rooms. Completed in the autumn of 2005, the Lacey A. Collier Sensory Complex was created in order to provide a higher quality of education to their diverse population of students. Centrally located on the school’s campus, this facility is composed of an atrium, four large themed multi sensory rooms, a sensory corridor and a sensory garden.
I spent a week there meeting Judge Collier and the staff, demonstrating our innovative new product Sensory Magic and surveying the four rooms in order to start the process of the revamp. This represents a large commitment from the school and further cements the Rompa and Westgate relationship.Our talented design team have started work on the designs that will allow the school to benefit from state of the art technology that will mean that whilst maintaining the current themes of the rooms we will now make them a truly interactive and immersive experience.
On a personal note it was an immensely enjoyable experience to meet the dedicated staff of the school, to have the opportunity of working in a different country and of course to enjoy the Florida sunshine and hospitality.
