On Friday 7th 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 Sustainability Learning Hub, Sports Gymnasium and Town Centre. Construction of the new facilities is set to be complete in 2021 and will be greatly beneficial to our students and their education journey.
The delivery of these new facilities will make a huge difference to our students, but of course, it’s not just about the buildings. Over the past two years, the College has 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!
