NEW ZOOLOGY CENTRE & ADMINISTRATION BUILDING

NEW ZOOLOGY CENTRE & ADMINISTRATION BUILDING

On Friday 7 February, we celebrated an important milestone for our school under the Lilydale and Upper Yarra Education Plan.  The Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, James Merlino, as well as MP Harriet Shing came out to our school to undertake a sod turning ceremony, which officially kicked off the start of construction for our Zoology Learning Centre and Administration Building.

Construction of the new facilities is set to be complete in 2020 and will be greatly beneficial to our students and their education journey.

As you know, our school is collaborating with these two schools and other key partners including the Education Department, industry partners and other local secondary and primary schools to support greater educational opportunities and outcomes for students across the Lilydale and Upper Yarra region.

The delivery of these new facilities will make a huge difference to our students, but of course, it’s not just about the buildings.

For over two years, we have been working hard to implement the Lilydale and Upper Yarra Education Plan to transform local secondary education in the area.  The drive behind all the work is to ensure we provide every secondary student with the knowledge, capabilities and attributes that will see them thrive throughout their lives and give them the skills they need to see them succeed in any path they chose to take.

There’s great work ahead of us and it’s an exciting space for our school to be in. Thank you to all our school community, students, parents and staff for the work so far. We can’t wait to continue the work with you all in ensuring high-quality secondary education in Lilydale and Upper Yarra areas and will keep you posted throughout the coming months on the next steps.
