Latest news from Cr Graham


I was extremely excited to hear that our Maroondah Plus 10 schools project has received $890,000 in funding over the next two years.

The Maroondah Plus 10 schools project is a partnership between Council and all Maroondah public schools, and aims to raise the wellbeing and lift the educational outcomes of students.

The Victorian Government funding boost will assist the partnership to move forward and support young people to flourish as part of a healthy and thriving community.

It also adds significant value to the work of the Communities of Wellbeing project, of which I am a member, which is focussed on bringing world class expertise in positive psychology into Maroondah.

The project will be based at Heathmont College in a new integrated Wellbeing Centre to be built over the next couple of years.

I look forward to seeing the positive outcomes it will have on our young people and local community.
