Premier announced $6.8M for school at new Monash Children’s Hospital
In September 2016, we welcomed Premier Daniel Andrews, Minister for Education James Merlino and Minister for Health Jill Hennessy to Monash Children’s Hospital to meet young patients and announce the new Monash Children’s Hospital School.
Children who are patients of Monash Children’s Hospital for more than four weeks will be able to access the service.
The school will employ a principal and 10 to 15 teachers to support 170 students per day.
School is such an important aspect in a child’s life, the new Monash Children’s Hospital School will allow young patients to maintain their social networks and studies while they undergo treatment.
