A warm welcome to visiting students


The choice to undertake study, especially in the healthcare industry, can be overwhelming, which is why we welcome student groups on campus to tour our facilities and hear first hand from our passionate staff.  

In May, a group of young students from Albert Park Flexible Learning Centre were given the opportunity to tour the Mater Education facilities.

Madelaine Winstanley, teacher at Albert Park Flexible Learning Centre, reached out to Mater Education after one of her students expressed interest in study with Mater Education to become a nurse.

“This tour was initiated by one of our students, whose goal is to become a nurse. They had researched the Mater Education Diploma of Nursing program, but also wanted to see and get a feel for the campus. The students really appreciated the opportunity to visit different learning spaces and ask lots of questions. An unexpected bonus was hearing about the history of the Mater and its buildings and appreciating the architecture.”

Albert Park Flexible Learning Centre is part of Edmund Rice Education Australia. It is a co-educational learning community catering for young people between 14 and 25 years of age, and founded on the principles of Rights, Respect, Relationship, Responsibility and Safe & Legal.

We encourage any student groups who may be interested in a career in healthcare to get in touch with us about a tailored welcome to the campus.
