Yesterday we were delighted to welcome the Victorian Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, The Hon. James Merlino, to the Monash Children’s Hospital School.
During a tour led by School Principal Colin Dobson and School Council President and General Paediatrician Dr Cathy McAdam, the Minister observed primary and secondary school classes and spoke with teachers and students.
The Monash Children’s Hospital School is the first Victorian Department of Education school within a children’s hospital in Australia. Since opening over 20 months ago, the School has taught 2155 students while they receive care at Monash Children’s Hospital.
