Students across the Warragul region will soon be enjoying new facilities with a major upgrade at the Warragul Regional College.

Warragul Regional College’s $5.8 million upgrade will help it deliver a 21st century education for its approximately 800 students at Warragul’s historic “School on the Hill”.

Builders 2Construct will complete the modernisation project, which will include construction of a new STEM hub, general purpose classrooms, a senior student study lounge, and breakout and collaboration areas.

Created through the merger of Warragul High School and Warragul Technical School, the “School on the Hill” has delivered secondary education to the Warragul community since 1911, making it one of Australia’s oldest secondary schools.

The project is due for completion in early 2019.

Minister for Education James Merlino said; “Warragul Regional College prides itself on being ‘a school with a proud history and bright future’, and now students and staff can look forward to their new state-of-the-art learning facilities being operational in early 2019.”
