New Buildings Completed
The recent holidays saw the completion of two building projects; our new Senior School Building and the Doctors in Secondary Schools Building. Both are fantastic additions to Patterson River's facilities.
On the first day of term we were visited by the Education Minister / Deputy Premier Hon. James Merlino who opened our Doctors Building.
This was followed later in the week by a morning tea for Year 12 students & teachers to open the new Senior School Building.
The new facility for senior students includes:
- Large common room
- Private study area
- Coordinators office
Doctors in Secondary Schools Program
Students will soon have access to a doctor during school hours one day per week. Patterson River has teamed up with Attitcus Health in Carrum & the state government to deliver this innovative service to students as part of the Doctors in Secondary Schools Program. Training is currently underway for school staff which will be followed shortly by information that will be distributed to the school community.
We are currently working on the booking and communication systems. The State Government has provided information regarding consent and confidentiality for students and parents (see below).
