On Wednesday 1st March, The Honourable Mr James Merlino, Deputy Premier Victoria, State Member for Monbulk, Minister of Education and Emergency Services visited the College to turn the first sod for our construction. He was joined by Ms Danielle Green MP, Member for Yan Yean and Member for Northern Victoria, Ms Jaclyn Symes MP.
The College has been granted a $5 million upgrade which will be used to expand the school's food technology facilities, convert a courtyard into a café and provide senior students with a brand new building featuring quiet learning areas, a seminar room and lecture theatre.
During his time at WSC, Mr Merlino visited our Aspire Tram project. This project will see the students of the Aspire Flexible Learning Program acquire hands on skills.
Our Year 11 Food Studies class also met with Mr Merlino as did our Year 9 Textile class. The students all enjoyed the time spent with him.
His final stop was a visit to one of our VETiS programs which is being conducted with the assistance of the SAGE Institute. The students involved in the Early Education and Care program come from a variety of different Colleges and Schools and meet at WSC each Wednesday for their tutorial.
WSC would like to thank Mr Merlino, Ms Green and Ms Symes for their time and support given to the College.
