How donations make a difference
Dear Friends of Clarendon
At Ballarat Clarendon College, we are committed to providing our students with opportunities that will support them to reach their full potential.
From 2022, Clarendon’s residential campus will be situated at Yuulong, just west of Cape Otway, and we need your help to make this extraordinary campus a reality.
The simplicity of the campus design provides appropriate space for the exploration of the goals of the residential program. The Student Development curriculum, which underpins the program, supports students’ progress in the key domains of identity, relationships and self-management. The curriculum and the Yuulong landscape work in harmony to provide challenging and authentic experiential learning opportunities for students, supporting them as they make progress to the next stage of their learning journey.
Nestled in the hills at Yuulong, amongst the existing shearing shed and outbuildings, students will live and participate in their landscape. The design and infrastructure of the campus, its form and detail, support students’ engagement with and reflection upon their place within the landscape. This is the architecture of participation where students will learn from and, in real time, monitor their impact on the environment by tracking their energy and water use.
On nearly 50 hectares with sweeping views across the Southern Ocean, the Yuulong residential campus will include two student dormitories, the Commons – with classroom, communal spaces and kitchen – and staff accommodation.
Together, with your support, we can build a Yuulong campus where students – well into the future – develop the skills, competencies and capacity to become the best versions of themselves; where they can engage with their place in and responsibility for the environment; and where they learn to confidently engage with challenges as they transition to adult life.
Please consider donating to the Yuulong appeal so that we can equip our students to achieve their heart’s desire.
