Yarra Ranges Tech School construction works begin

Posted On October 14, 2016

Works have begun on a new Tech School in the Yarra Ranges that will transform the region into an innovative hub for education.

Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Eastern Victoria Daniel Mulino were today present at Box Hill Institute’s Lilydale Lakeside campus, the site location of the new Tech School.

The Tech School will allow students from up to 18 local secondary schools to better learn science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects thanks to its state of the art high-tech robotics lab, virtual reality rooms and fabrication labs.

Minister for Education James Merlino spoke of the innovative plans for the school.

“A Tech School is not a traditional school – it’s a shared campus for local secondary schools that is equipped with leading edge technology to provide students a new type of learning environment as part of their enrolment at their local secondary school.”

The schools focus will be related to precision manufacturing, medical robotics, sustainability and renewables, bio technology, food and fibre –further equipping students with the skills to translate into technology work.

Member for Eastern Victoria Daniel Mulino also spoke of the benefits the school will have for local students.

“The Yarra Ranges Tech School will provide students from 18 surrounding secondary schools the opportunity to develop the skills they need in science, technology, engineering and maths for the high tech jobs of the future.”

Classes will be delivered in partnership with Deakin University and William Angliss Institute, with works on the Tech School expected to be completed by January 2017.
