In early 2012 Wyndham Central College was a school in trauma, lacking in student pride and without any sense of community. In 2010 an Extended Diagnostic Review of the College painted a picture of poor student learning outcomes, engagement and pathways, low staff morale and poor community perception. The school was underachieving, in the 10th percentile of government schools.
The revitalisation program at Wyndham Central College has completely turned the school around, from an underachieving School with no sense of community or pride, to the vibrant and connected campus it is today. It was a priority in the School’s educational vision to completely rebrand the school by distributing the budget across the entire campus, rather than focusing on fewer but more costly buildings. New cladding materials, sections of render over the old brown bricks and splashes of colour were able to freshen the facades of old 1970’s buildings and brighten the entire campus to maximum effect.
