Inspecting Progress On Future Year 11 & 12 Hub

Member for South Barwon Darren Cheeseman MP on Thursday joined Geelong Lutheran College’s Executive Team and College Captains to inspect progress on GLC Armstrong Creek’s new Year 11 & 12 Hub, Ngarrwa.

The $8.7 million project is jointly funded by the GLC local community and the Victorian State Government, with $2.8 million funding from Round 4 of the Government’s Non-Government Schools Capital Fund.

Named for the Wadawurrung word for knowledge, Ngarrwa (pronounced narr-wah) was chosen to be the name of the Year 11 & 12 Hub by the GLC Board from a range of options, reflecting the purpose of the new facility and recognition of the Traditional Owner’s on whose land GLC Armstrong Creek is located.

The new building will include 12 General Learning Areas (classrooms), several break out learning spaces, Year 12 Common Room, a tiered amphitheatre-style presentation space, outdoor learning areas, and three classrooms catering for smaller tutorial classes. Operable walls will allow for optimal transformation of learning spaces, enabling multi-use opportunities for students and the broader College community.

The framework of the new building, consisting of 67 modules, had been constructed by King Lake Modular Systems offsite, before being trucked in sections to Armstrong Creek over the past few months. With all modules now in place, the internal and external fit out has now commenced, with the new building set to open in time for the 2024 academic year.
