The facility is well-lit and has views of the existing campus, which is a crucial aspect for tying the new structure to the rest of the institution. Other features include cutting-edge laboratory facilities that can accommodate students of all ages, seamless ICT connectivity and audio-visual capabilities, writable surfaces for problem solving and collaborative activities and modest study nooks.
“We can’t wait for this building to be full of the girls who are lucky enough to go to Fintona so that they can build out some of their brightest and boldest ideas and help shape not just a better Melbourne, but a better Australia and a better world.”
Dr Brownyn King AO, Fintona Alumni 1992
