Our new Learning Community – Terra Verde

The exciting transition to the new building has been quite a journey, and is now beginning to take shape as we move into Term 3. Students will start full time in Terra Verde from the beginning of the term.

123 ‘Terra Verde’?

The students chose this name and we all love it! Literally translated from Italian as ‘Green earth’, children voted for this name after a huge process of brainstorming and evaluating. Ultimately it was the green colour scheme inside, coupled with the proximity to nature and views of nearby Merri Creek that led students to return to a ‘green’ theme.
