Iona College GeelongThe new Stage 2 facilities at Iona College Geelong, Charlemont, were opened by the Deputy Premier, the Hon. James Merlino.

The impressive new facilities include an AFL-approved oval, a gymnasium and amenities, alongside learning spaces for food technology and music. The Deputy Premier was joined by state representative Darren Cheeseman, MLA for South Barwon, and the college’s principal Damian McKew to celebrate the next stage in the growth of Iona College.

‘The most important thing in education is the quality of teaching’, said Mr Merlino, ‘but design makes a difference. When you have buildings that are beautiful and well-designed, it makes it easier to teach and it makes it easier to learn’.
