A fabulous celebration was held on Thursday March 16 for the opening of our new Art & Design Centre at our Garnsey Campus.
Senator Raff Ciccone was joined by the Bishop of Gippsland the Right Reverend Dr Richard Treloar and more than 50 VIPs as well as some of our Visual Art and Design students for the opening of the multi-million dollar Centre, which features seven purpose-built classrooms to accommodate Visual Arts and Design subjects including Art, Design, Media, Applied Computing, Wood Technology and Materials Technology.
Principal Michele Wakeham said both teachers and students were overwhelmed by the state-of-the-art space when it was able to open for lessons last year.
“It’s been amazing to see the teaching and learning that has flourished in the Centre,” Mrs Wakeham said. “Particularly the real-world skills we see in the work that the students are producing.”
The Art & Design Centre was made possible thanks to the Australian Government’s Capital Grants Program, the Gippsland Grammar Foundation, the John Leslie Foundation, the Hugh and Selina Williams Foundation and generous contributions from more than 50 personal donors.
This amazing Centre is truly a space where our students will Learn and be empowered to Live and Lead.
