Monash Tech School facilitators were recently invited by the Monash Children’s Hospital teaching staff to visit the hospital and school. As a partner school of Monash Tech School, we explored the idea of incorporating the hospital into our Superhealth program, which would give students an insight into some of the spaces created for patients, family members and staff across the various facilities within the hospital.
The hospital is a state of the art medical hospital for the south-east region and situated within the City of Monash. It is designed to make young patients feel more comfortable visiting the hospital, and has its own school, Starlight Foundation rooms, and a Ronald McDonald House, so patients can participate in an array of activities. We are currently working on the logistics of the visits for this year and are excited to be working with Monash Children's Hospital School.
