Wendouree West Community Study
Education Minister Bronwyn Pike launched a University of Ballarat report on the Thursday 13th November. The report written by Craig Marshall and Helen Thompson of the Centre for eCommerce & Communications (CeCC) was entitled Neighbourhood Renewal through community engagement and education: Wendouree West case study. The report followed the development of the Wendouree West Community Learning Hub. An exciting new facility that brings together important education, health and community services all in the one location for residents in Wendouree West.
Ms Pike said "The report highlights the power of what can be achieved through collaboration between a passionate and strong community, government, and local agencies".
It recognises that just as a quality education requires a combination of many things including good curriculum, good teachers and good infrastructure, communities also require a variety of high quality local services and Wendouree West now have them in the one location.
