Why our College is a pioneer
The state government, the Colman Foundation and the federal government agreed to establish a unique partnership to plan, build and operate the new facility, Doveton College. It is the first government school partnership of its kind in Australia.
The Colman Foundation donated $1.8 million to the construction of the school and Early Learning Centre, on top of the state and federal governments’ $36 million contribution.
The Foundation also pledged a 10 year annual funding support for programs and community facilities at the College.
