On Tuesday 14th August, members of our Geelong Lutheran College community and student leaders gathered to officially open our new Senior Science Building. Ms Christine Couzens, Member for Geelong, attended to officially open the new building alongside our Chairman of Council, Andrew Eichler, Brands Architects and members of the GLC community who shared a role in bringing the vision of this building to life.
This $4 million project was part-funded by the State Government, with the College funding the remaining half. This state-of-the-art science building contains a number of flexible teaching rooms and specialist spaces, alternatively designed to maximize collaborative learning.
The building provides a new benchmark for facilities at the College and displays our specialist focus on science, sustainable farming and environmental stewardship.
Key inclusions such as specialist Biology/ Chemistry and Physics laboratories with classrooms connecting to a plant room for biological studies and a large outdoor garden area will incorporate farming with scientific research.
