$6.8 million school to be built at Monash Children’s Hospital

Posted On September 14, 2016

Premier Daniel Andrews, Minister for Education James Merlino and Minister for Health Jill Hennessy have today announced a new school to be built within the new Monash Children’s Hospital.

The Premier and Ministers made the announcement during a visit to the hospital.

“All kids deserve access to a great school, and recovering in hospital should be no barrier to getting the very best education” stated Premier Daniel Andrews.

The Monash Childrens Hospital School will have four multi-use classrooms, a room for computers and necessary space for teaching staff.

Students that are required to remain in bed will be able to use inbuilt systems within the hospital as well as tablets and laptop computers to video conference with their school so as to not fall behind on their studies and to stay in touch with peers and their teachers.

Minister for Health Jill Hennessy spoke of the troubles some patients have with education whilst ill.

“We know that being in and out of hospital is really tough on kids and their families – this means seriously ill kids and their families can have peace of mind that they won’t fall behind with their studies while undergoing treatment.”

The Andrews Labor Government has so far spent $1.8 billion on the construction and redevelopment of new and existing school, a state record.

The Monash Children’s Hospital School will cost $6.8 million and is expected to open sometime iduring 2017, with the Children’s Hospital on track for completion by the close of this year.
