Year 6 Transition Program 2019
Heritage College Officer campus unveils new Multi-Purpose Centre
In its 20th year, Heritage College is an integral part of the local community. Beginning in the City of Casey and expanding into Cardinia shire in 2009, Heritage College continues to develop its infrastructure in response to the growth in the area and increasing numbers of enrolments. The newest addition to the development of the Officer campus was officially unveiled in a commemorative ceremony on Tuesday, 6 August. Dignitaries and special guests were invited to attend including representatives from Architects Kneeler Design and builder, Edmanson Constructions, Heritage College Council members, and Hon. Jason Wood, MP.
The first stage release of the facility features a state of the art basketball court, shower and dressing room facilities, providing students on campus with the opportunity to hone their skills in sportsmanship in an indoor environment. Principal, Mr Sonny Aiono, said, ‘Since its construction, the Multi Purpose Centre at Officer campus has been in use by all age levels from Early Learning through to Secondary. It has proven to be a hub of activity and will house events throughout the year such as awards nights, assemblies and chapel services. Outside of school hours, it plays host to basketball clinics and other community groups. We look forward to seeing our community enjoy the facility for many years to come’.
