20-Year Vision for the Seaford District Centre

Our student leaders have had the opportunity to participate in an initial consultation and discussion with key council staff regarding the 20-year vision for the Seaford District Centre. The students are excited about the fact that their ideas for the future of Seaford may contribute to the planning. A sense of connection of our school with our community is really important and the opportunity to not only be part of the visioning and consultation process, but to be part of the creation is very exciting.

We are looking forward to the possibility to include classes to take responsibility for maintaining areas, planting and caring for flora, and involved in construction.
