Year 7 Barkly Campus 2020

Situated in the beautiful, and historic ‘Gilmore Building’ at the Barkly Street Campus.

Contemporary Learning Environments

All classrooms are serviced by high speed wireless internet and interactive projectors, and are fitted with flexible furniture to create a contemporary learning environment for our year 7s. 

For our STEAM learning, the school also offers a state of the art, purpose built Design, Arts, Technology and Science facility (DATs) that was redeveloped in 2019 as part of the Education Department’s 15.4 million dollar investment in the Footscray Learning Precinct. 

Building has also begun on our three storey Learning Community, that will house our year 8s from 2021, and Year 9s, in 2022.
