                                             FUNCTIONALLY COLOURS IN SCHOOL

The functionality of colour in the school in order to achieve that students feel more comfortable in the school premises, to reduce visual fatigue and related disorders in order to enhance the participation of pupils to teachers to encourage them to discipline and sense of order and clean.


For the focal colour, which is a view mostly directed learners, chosen with cold tones that the walls of the optical remote and thus increase the space and disseminated. This applies to the front wall in the classroom, where the views of pupils throughout the school faces.


The same should be done, when choosing colours for walls, in which the windows and from where comes the light. This wall must be in bright colours, as close as possible background colours that we see when looking through the window in the yard or garden. This will give the desirable colour surround effect because the unsaturated bright colour walls adjusts light windows and creates the impression of a kind of haze.


Student at the entrance to a grade class sizes appear larger than they really are, because he is a focal wall with windows, where upon arrival in class first glance turns, so to speak, withdrawal and merging with the courtyard value in the vast whole. The optical color effect is even more effective if they also paint hallways and entrance hall properly selected.


Entrance hall and corridors in the school must be in warm and vibrant colours that humans animate, inspire, warm places ... but optically narrow and closer, so the child when entering into almost literally attracted to and embrace. The corridors should be equipped with light colours, which emit in the usually more dark spaces as much light. Would it have to be less bright than classes.


The rear wall of the classroom, where students are facing the back, should be in a warm colour (eg. Cream) because the class brings warmth and colour variety and it works more pleasant and more visually appealing.


The same is true if we want to reduce visual fatigue. If we want to eye gets tired quickly, and students can persist as long as possible to focus the view on the blackboard and the teacher, then it must be false wall in calm, cool colours (diluted green, sky blue, ...).


Warm colours would be too challenging and would bother much faster. Therefore, they should be avoided (saturated red, orange, purple, white, black, brown).


The rear wall, which should be in warm colours, the focal teacher, because her directed his gaze almost constantly teaching. Therefore, it is right that it constantly slightly irritating, stimulates and from passivity puts in activity. The opposite is true for students to take them front wall soothing because they are already too busy.


Ceilings in the classroom should be as brighter, both because of the light that shine because they look at the bright ceiling tiring and consequently the withdrawal of the child spontaneously look away, to calm the colour of the front wall. From this, a bright ceiling to assist the child in concentration, alertness and in collaboration with teachers.
