New School Facilities For Bangholme Students

The Andrews Labor Government is making sure students in Melbourne’s southeast have the school facilities they deserve for a great education.

Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Mordialloc Tim Richardson today visited Cornish College to officially open its new $4 million VCE Centre.

The centre includes new senior year classrooms and a study area, to provide VCE students with spaces that have less noise and distraction.

The new centre also gives the school to a dedicated space for its senior years’ learning program that is distinct and tailored to match the needs of VCE students.

The new facilities will also free up space to create a dedicated Year 7 centre and provide appropriate study areas and a tutorial room for learning support and integration aides in the senior school.

Designed by McGlashan Everist and built by Raysett Constructions, the new centre will mean teachers can deliver the 21st-century education Cornish College students need to succeed.

The Labor Government contributed nearly $2 million to the $4 million project through its Capital Funding Program for Non-Government Schools.

The Victorian 2019/20 Budget committed $402 million to the Capital Funding Program for Non-Government Schools over the next four years, to upgrade and build non-government schools across Victoria. More than one-third of Victorian students study at Catholic or independent schools.

The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and get a great education.
