Sunbury College’s would-be boffins are enjoying a new formula for learning thanks to a $3.5 million science wing that was unveiled last week.

Principal Darryn Kruse said the wing provided four “state-of-the-art science classrooms” and break-out areas for small group work, as well as seven new general classrooms.

“It’s a new home for some of our extension programs, like the robotics project, science competitions and drone construction and piloting club,” he said.

He said the wing delivered facilities that supported “modern teaching and learning” and in which teachers and students would effectively work together.

He said the science wing offered the college greater opportunities for team teaching, carefully supervised small group work and increased access to multimedia for the students.

Sunbury MP Josh Bull, who attended the opening of the new science wing last Wednesday, said it was a great addition to the school.

“It’s fantastic to see students at Sunbury College putting their new science facility to use,” he said. “This science wing will equip them with the knowledge and skills to thrive in school and beyond.

“This is all part of keeping our commitment to Sunbury College and the broader community.”
