About:⁠
In the next decade, to match population growth, Australia will build hundreds of new schools and extend existing ones – presenting a major opportunity to apply new knowledge about how the built environment can support stronger communities and better education.⁠

This exhibition showcases the latest evidence and expert advice about developing and sustaining schools as community hubs. It has been created and curated by the research team and partners in the Australian Research Council Linkage Project; Building Connections: Schools as Community Hubs. ⁠

Discover the continuum of school-community connections, celebrate and investigate success stories, and find inspiration and key information for new hub initiatives.⁠

We are excited to be working with the Department of Education and Victorian School Building Authority, @fieldwork_architects and Dr Ben Cleveland of Engaging Spaces on a new vertical school.⁠

The Centre for Higher Education Studies (CHES) in South Yarra is situated on the traditional lands of the Yalukit-willam clan of the Boonwurrung. CHES students will be able to study first-year university courses and select VCE subjects, accompanied by an enhancement and enrichment program. This 'head start' on tertiary courses allows our most capable students to undertake study aligned to their skills and interests that contributes to their ATAR, whilst gaining university credits.⁠

The multistorey centre, constructed on land purchased from the Melbourne High School Foundation, will include an auditorium, technology-rich learning spaces and tertiary standard science and design labs.⁠
