"It’s a space where teachers and students can teach and learn, and more importantly, apply 21st century skills. Where the teacher becomes the facilitator and student led enquiry based learning-to-learn can thrive."
A DIGITAL CREATIVE HUB FOR ST MALACHY'S COLLEGE
"CreativeHUT helped me with every step of the project: advising, planning, graphics, furniture, layout, technology and training; and they were the loveliest, most patient and knowledgeable people to work with"
Creative Digital Leader | St Malachy's College
St Malachy’s College is a Catholic grammar school in Belfast, Ireland passionate about giving all individuals the chance to reach their full potential and has echoed this through implementing a CreativeHUT Digital Creative Hub and Hybrid Esports Arena at their college.
With global technological advancement, the need for young people to develop and improve their digital skills has never been greater.

Proposal - Following feedback on the concepts, the most suitable solution was agreed upon and was then progressed into a fully detailed proposal to map out all the finer details of the solution.
Design - CreativeHUT liaised with the architect and building contractor teams to help advise on the functionality and the look & feel of the space, which involved construction work and bespoke project/storage furniture for 2 x main classroom spaces. CreativeHUT also led the design, production and installation of graphical artwork for all wall spaces to help bring the space to life and ensure the perfect environment for students and communities to learn & develop within.
Revise - This was a very iterative process. St Malachy's were provided with initial design concepts which they could feedback on, to be amended and developed further, depending on their preferences for the design.
Install - Once all parties were in agreement, the CreativeHUT Team were onsite to oversee the installation of all wall graphics, and support the architect and building contractor teams. All this was in line with the deadlines scheduled for everything to be ready for the launch.
Launch - CreativeHUT were delighted to be involved in the full official launch of the ‘Digital Creative Hub’ & 'Hybrid Esports Arena' which involved students using the resources and spaces for the very first time. It also enabled the backers of the project to see the impact of the solution first-hand.
Training - St Malachy's are involved in regular training to enable them to utilise all of the resources effectively and confidently with the end users, and will be continued to be supported into the future through in-person training from the CreativeHUT ‘STEAM Team’ and our eLearning platform.
Continued Support - We ensure that all our partners are forever supported in delivering what they need. We love building long-lasting relationships which continue to have a positive impact on student learning long into the future.

“As a new Creative Digital Leader in my school, I was tasked with building a Digital Hub to house Creative Technology for a new KS3 Digital Curriculum. The only people I found that could help me with this were CreativeHUT. They helped me with every step of the project: advising, planning, graphics, furniture, layout, technology and training; and they were the loveliest, most patient and knowledgeable people to work with, especially during very stressful times. They were always at the other end of the phone, and nothing was too great a job. I can't wait to see what else I can work with them on in the future."

“It has been an absolute privilege to be part of this project together with St Malachy's College, whose passion and effort to make this superb learning space a reality has been incredible. We’ve enjoyed the process from start to finish so much, and it’s just brilliant to now see it fully in action with lots of excited and enthusiastic pupils & teachers from across the North Belfast Area Learning Community. The positive and long-lasting impact that this space will have on learning for all visitors is fantastic"
