Today was a significant milestone in the history of Cornish College as we celebrate the opening of our Senior Studies Centre by the Hon James Merlino MP, Deputy Premier and Minister for Education. Mr Merlino spoke warmly of the need for thoughtfully designed spaces to enhance learning experiences for Victorian students. The construction of this remarkable building was made possible through funding from the Victorian Government, the Cornish College Community and support from the Parents’ Association.

The Minister was joined by Tim Richardson MP, State Member for Mordialloc and Parliamentary Secretary for Schools.

Rev Dr Robert Johnson, Chair of the College Board dedicated the building and spoke of the vision shown by Principal Vicki Steer in bringing the project to life. In honour of her significant legacy, Rev Johnson announced the landscaped area at the front of the Centre will be known as ‘The Vicki Steer Green’.

Our four School Captains, Daniel, Polly, Phoebe-Rose and Fern were in attendance to represent our excited VCE cohort and assist with cutting the ribbon.

As Principal Vicki Steer said so well, ‘Today was a real Cornish team effort’.
