The City of Mitchell built an integrated community/learning hub at Seymour College.
The hub hosts a range of activities that support community strengthening and development. The Seymour Community Hub consists of two early learning rooms with associated outdoor spaces, two maternal and child health rooms with a shared waiting area, and two consulting rooms. Allied health professionals use the consulting rooms to deliver specialist health services such as early childhood intervention services, family services, counselling, occupational therapy and speech therapy.
The hub also includes a multi-purpose room that opens out to the outdoor play space that can be used for extended day care or as a meeting space for community meetings, school holiday programs, homework groups and group activities such as yoga, social groups and youth groups.
In the 2016-17 State Budget, the Victorian Government invested $50 million into the Shared Facilities Fund (SFF). The program funds schools, councils and other institutions to develop shared facilities such as early learning centres, sports facilities and community hubs.
These co-located and shared facilities improve connections between school and community, build a sense of collective purpose and transform neighbourhoods.
