In March, Neerim District Secondary College became the first school involved with veski’s inspiring students (& teachers) program to unveil new learning and teaching spaces for science and technology.

The Hon Martin Dixon MP, Minister for Education officially opened the Delzoppo Science and Technology Learning Centre in front of members of the community, students and staff of the school, the Delzoppo family and the veski chief executive officer.

The building was named in honour of Mr John and Mrs Beth Delzoppo who have made incredible contributions to the school over the past 50 years, including during the opening of the school in 1963.

The event was a family affair with three of the couple’s children, who have all attended Neerim District Secondary College, surprising their parents by flying in from different parts of Australia.

Neerim District Principal Michaela Cole welcomed guests with an inspiring speech about the history of the school, her appreciation and aspirations for the new Science and Technology Learning Centre and the Delzoppo’s extensive involvement with the school.

It was evident that everyone involved in this achievement was very proud and excited by the vast amount of opportunities that are now available to the students and teachers.

The veski chief executive officer Ms Julia L Page, joined by veski events & programs coordinator Ms Alexis Andrew, had the opportunity to meet and talk with fellow guests over a splendid morning tea.

The refurbishment includes four spacious and colourful rooms that will be used to teach science as well as inspire and encourage students to consider pursuing science as an option for tertiary study and as a career.   

The improved facilities will also allow the teachers and students to take advantage of additional elements of veski’s inspiring students (& teachers) program.
