    • A new theatre, music rooms and state-of-the-art lighting are among the new facilities
    • An investment to enhance the school's high quality creative arts programs
    • A 2017 McGowan Labor Government election commitment 

    Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery has today unveiled Belmont City College's new performing arts centre.


    A $5 million investment has transformed the college's existing performing arts space, which now features a stage and audience seating for 250 people, state-of-the-art lighting and sound, 3D mapping technology, new foyer, additional storage space and a refurbished green room.


    The contemporary new facility provides enhanced learning opportunities for students participating in creative arts programs including specialist contemporary drama, and music excellence and dance.


    This project was a 2017 McGowan Labor Government election commitment.


    Comments attributed to Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:


    "Belmont City College now has a cutting edge performing arts centre to match the school's fantastic creative arts programs.


    "It's vital that we invest in our schools so that students are learning in the best possible environment and can really explore their potential."


    Comments attributed to Belmont MLA Cassie Rowe:


    "Belmont City College has a fantastic offering of creative arts programs for students, including dance, performing arts and design and visual arts, but they had well and truly outgrown their old facilities.


    "This modern venue will give generations of students a purpose-built space to be able to develop their skills and showcase their talents."
