Facility Hire

Community access to facilities has been a feature of Collingwood College since its inception.

Meetings and conferences by a wide variety of organisations are held regularly at the College. The Gymnasium is often in use during evenings and on weekends.

Facilities are used frequently by local sporting clubs, community groups and educational organisations.

College classrooms are used extensively for language schools, the largest being the Victorian School of Languages, which operates on Saturday mornings.

The College’s close proximity to the city and all forms of public transport make it an ideal venue.

Performing arts facilities

The performing arts complex is currently undergoing some much needed renovation and maintenance to improve the standard of technical facilities. As such, the theatre is currently unavailable for hire.

The dance studio which sits adjacent to the theatre has a mirrored wall and sprung timber dance floor and is still available for hire as a rehearsal space.

Gymnasiums and sporting facilities

The College has two gymnasiums that have facilities for many different sports including basketball, netball, volleyball, badminton, indoor hockey and soccer.

The larger of the two gymnasiums measures 33m x 22.5m and the second court is 25m x 15m. The facility has its own weights room and toilet/shower area.

Outside playing fields consist of a soccer field to the west and a football and netball/basketball area at the front of the school to the east.

Hiring charges and procedures

The College continues to provide services to the community at reasonable rates. Due to the continued increase in Caretakers and Cleaners costs, the rate has increased in 2017. Please note the new fees. The College is aware of community use of the facilities and has maintained the rate at highly competitive prices.

Queries regarding the rental should be directed to Kylie Lawson on 03 9412 6681.

PUBLIC HOLIDAYS

The College remains closed on all public holidays.

The Education Departments public risk cover is for school use and hours only. As in the past an additional charge for all hirers will be levied unless proof of public risk cover is given upon application.

The College continues to provide services to the community at reasonable rates. The College has reviewed rental rates and this increase is due to rising costs of staff and utilities as well as a 2% Security Levy.

Local Community / School Groups

The College continues to provide it’s venues to not for profit local organisations and local schools at a reduced rate. The rate is set at the minimum hire rate for each venue and is available during the week prior to 6pm. Due to costs of caretaking during weekends it is unlikely, unless other venues are used that this rate can apply.
