The zammit senior centre

Opened in June, our new VCE Senior Centre continues to receive rave reviews from all who have inspected this state-of-the-art facility. Designed to facilitate the very best in contemporary education, the pre-tertiary style of architecture of the Centre has certainly enabled us to achieve our aims of redefining senior schooling for our Year 11 & 12 students. Take a trip around the building by viewing the video.

Our much awaited Zammit Senior Centre overlooks our athletics track and North oval.  This new landmark building boasts 20 state-of-the-art classrooms and a cafeteria which seats 250 students and staff.

Much attention has been given to the need to address modern teaching and learning styles. The building has a tertiary feel; with the corridors lined on one side by glass walled rooms and on the other by break-out spaces that will promote both collaborative and individual learning. A sizeable space has been devoted to a silent study area.

Our Year 11 and Year 12 students have a wonderful facility in which to learn and study and from which they will be able to enjoy views which will extend out over Port Phillip Bay.
