Thanks Josh!

Thanks to Josh Burns MP for visiting VCD and announcing we were successful with a Federal Government grant to upgrade some of our technology. The funding will offset costs as we seek to purchase the next generation of large, interactive screens. We are grateful for the grant and hope everyone enjoys the video!

Celebrating Education Week in Victoria: Embracing Inclusive education and empowering learners

Education Week is here from Sunday May 14 to Saturday May 20, and we couldn’t be more excited to invite you to join us in celebrating this annual event dedicated to education in Victoria.
Science Gallery Melbourne’s STEM Center of Excellence is an initiative between the Victorian Government’s Tech School initiative and the University of Melbourne. We are delighted to highlight our unique partnership with the esteemed Victorian College for the Deaf. Together, we aim to create a positive and inclusive learning environment for students.
This year’s Education Week theme, ‘Active Learners: Move, Make, Motivate,’ resonates with the core values we hold dear. It underscores the significance of physical activity, hands-on learning, and amplifying student voices in the educational landscape. We believe that active learning is the key to unlocking the full potential of every student, and we remain committed to providing unwavering support on their educational journey.
To showcase our approach, we are thrilled to release a special video highlighting the power of collaboration and the transformative impact it has on the lives of students and teachers. You can watch the video by clicking here.
Let us unite to make a positive impact on education and collectively build a brighter future for all learners. Together, we can empower students to thrive and succeed.

When I Grow Up Victorian college for the Deaf sign choir

Our VCD sign choir started 2023 with this interpretation of 'When I Grow Up' from Matilda, the Musical. VCD believes in its students and families, despite the barriers and difficulties that may be thrown their way. We know that deaf people can do anything they want, provided they have the education, support, language and literacy, and inclusion access to do so. This is part of our work and vision.
