The Engine Room

The Canterbury College Engine Room is a unique, amazing space where children can improve their energy levels, concentration, fine and gross motor skills - all while having fun.

With activities ranging from balancing, using a trapeze, the "big squishy cushion", a ball pit, bear walking, leopard crawling and more, for the students it is half an hour of excitement. Our teachers know it's based on extensive research which shows these activities "get your engine running" - or, keep students' energy levels at the optimum place for learning.
