Language Centre for John Fawkner College
In June 2009, the Federal Minister for Education, Julia Gillard, announced the college was to receive $1.97 million towards the construction of a language centre.
The new facility is designed to support the learning of English, literacy and languages other than English (LOTE). It will also provide information technology and audio visual suites and meeting rooms. Another feature will be an outside courtyard for use as a learning space.
John Fawkner College is the only government college in Moreland to be awarded funding for a language centre. The new facility was opened at the start of the 2012 school year, and students have already commenced to experience the benefits of undertaking their learning experience in a 21st Century learning environment.
