‘A vibrant day of site visits and research insight in Bendigo’

Learning Environments Australasia Victoria Chapter invite you to join us for a regional tour to Bendigo to take in some of the State’s most significant school regeneration projects of the past ten years.

The Montagne Centre at Marist College Bendigo will feature as the Winner of the 2015 CEFPI Victoria Chapter New Individual Facility. The day will also involve site visits, presentations and discussions at Bendigo Senior Secondary College (English and Humanities Centre), La Trobe University’s Visual Arts Centre (including a learning environments research presentation by academics from the University) and the stunning new Ulumbarra Theatre, found within the walls of Bendigo’s 1860's Sandhurst Gaol.

We hope you can join us!
