VU welcomes Hume school to Sunbury Campus

Victoria University hosted a morning tea on Tuesday 30 March to welcome students and staff of Hume Anglican Grammar School to the University's former Sunbury Campus for their one-year stay.

Hume Anglican Grammar is using the Sunbury Campus as its home base until 2011 while it awaits approval for a permanent site in Craigieburn.

Deputy Vice Chancellor Management and Capital Services Jon Hickman said allowing the school to occupy the site temporarily had been good for all parties.

"The school is delighted it has been able to secure premises with appropriate educational facilities and the University is pleased that the Sunbury site has continued to be used for educational purposes," he said.

Hume Anglican Grammar is a small but growing independent school with about 350 students and staff.

Principal Andrew Mackenzie said school staff and students have embraced their new home with great enthusiasm. "We regularly come across children enjoying the space and gazing in awe at the buildings and the magnificent trees."  

VU closed its Sunbury Campus at the end of 2009. All VU courses have been relocated to other VU campuses in the western suburbs.
