Elwood Secondary College: Learning Hub

Written on the 14 November 2012

Ms CROZIER (Southern Metropolitan) -- My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Education, Martin Dixon. Recently I was pleased to attend the launch of the Elwood learning hub at Elwood Secondary College. Also in attendance at the launch to support this innovative initiative were the members for Brighton and Albert Park in the Assembly, Louise Asher and Martin Foley. I note that Mr Foley has a close affinity and personal connection with Elwood Primary School, one of the education facilities that is part of the Elwood hub.

 



The Elwood hub was set up in May 2011 to promote links between Poets Grove Children's Centre, Elwood Primary School and Elwood Secondary College. The vision of the Elwood learning hub is to provide children with the very best educational opportunities and build a sense of belonging and connectedness with the local community.

 


Some key goals of the hub include enhancing a sense of community for families, enhancing student learning outcomes, enhancing student engagement and pride, and streamlining and improving pathways and transitions.

 


The hub certainly demonstrates a great collaboration between the three education facilities and the many teachers, parents, students and supporters of the concept. At the launch we heard students from all three facilities give insights into their mentoring roles with younger students and the various enhanced learning programs they are undertaking. There is no doubt the hub has a unique ability, due to the proximity of the three education facilities, that allows this to be achieved. I therefore ask the minister to visit Elwood Secondary College to further understand the concept and program of the Elwood hub.
