Victoria International Container Terminal Ltd (VICT) recently presented Albert Park College with a AUD150,000 grant from VICT’s Community Investment Fund to fit out and resource a new Marine Research Centre at the school’s Environmental Arts Hub in Port Melbourne. 

The grant will also fund the scholarships of 20 students, as well as the construction of a new sustainable commercial kitchen.  Photo shows students of Albert Park College accepting the AUD150,000 check.  They are joined by (back row, from left):  Claire Jordan-Whillans, VICT Media & Community Relations Manager; Mark Sheppard, Albert Park College School Council President; Tony Desira, VICT Operations Manager; Steve Cook, Albert Park College Foundation Principal; Daniel Chen, VICT Commercial Experience Manager;  Anders DØmmestrup, VICT Chief Executive Officer; and Olivia Jones, VICT Company Secretary. 

The community investment fund is just one aspect of VICT’s strong commitment to working closely and positively with neighbouring communities around Webb Dock at the Port of Melbourne, particularly in the cities of Port Phillip and Hobsons Bay.

Based at Port of Melbourne’s Webb Dock East, VICT will operate Melbourne’s third international container terminal as well as the empty container park which is connected to the terminal.
