Westall Community Hub grand opening
9 November 2017
Kingston Council has officially opened the new $8.9million Westall Community Hub which will provide
a wide range of key community services in a ‘one-stop shop’.
The Westall Community Hub boasts:
- A new public library, with a focus on digital technology including a 3-D printer, green screen and free wi-fi plus fun activities including children’s Storytime sessions, school holiday activities and visits from authors.
- Kindergarten, playgroups and maternal/child health services to support young families.
- Education, health and wellbeing services rooms to be used by different service providers which may include speech therapy, dental screening, psychology and mental health services, financial and personal counselling, education including English classes and more.
The Westall Hub, co-located on the Westall Primary School and Westall Secondary College site, was
funded by Kingston Council and the Victorian Government ($2.35m).
Kingston Mayor David Eden said the new Westall Community Hub would ensure that the local
community had access to high-quality services close to home.
“This will be a fantastic place for the community to gather together, strengthen local connections and
benefit from quality services for the whole family,” Cr Eden said.
“It will also form a strong partnership with the neighbouring school communities and make the precinct
the heart of the Westall community.”
Mayor Eden said the Westall Community Hub was part of Kingston Council’s ongoing investment into
upgrading community facilities.
“Council has been investing many millions of dollars into early childcare, sporting and community
spaces to ensure we have quality facilities available to serve our community for years to come. “
