New Science Wing Opens For Sunbury Students

Staff and students at Sunbury College now have the state-of-the-art science facilities they deserve, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Minister for Education James Merlino joined Member for Sunbury Josh Bull at Sunbury College today to open their new $3.5 million science wing.

The redevelopment – designed by PMDL Architecture and built by 2Construct – provides specialised practical, theory and prep rooms as well as general learning spaces, collaborative areas and a staff workroom.

The Labor Government is transforming Victoria into the Education State, setting targets across all learning areas, including seeing 33 per cent more 15-year-olds achieving the highest levels of achievement in science literacy by 2025.

Sunbury College also secured $4.8 million in funding for Stage 2 works through the 2016-17 Victorian State Budget, which will see the existing library converted into a creative arts wing featuring spaces for media, digital arts, visual communications and music.
