Agnes Shea High School naming ceremony ACT

Recently, members of the Hindmarsh ACT project team joined key members of the ACT community to name Canberra’s 92nd public school.

The project name ‘North Gungahlin High School’ will be replaced, with the school now officially named ‘Agnes Shea High School’, after late senior Ngunnawal Elder Aunty Agnes Shea.

Representatives from the United Ngunnawal Elders Council, including Aunty Agnes’ granddaughter Selina Walker, attended the ceremony to mark the occasion.

Among her many achievements and contributions to Canberra and its various communities, Aunty Agnes Shea was a founding member of the United Ngunnawal Elders Council, a member of the advisory board to ACT Health, helped establish the Ngunnawal Bush Healing Farm and was a member of the ACT Heritage Council.

Once complete, the Agnes Shea High School will start by hosting Year 7 and 8 students, and then grow to cater for up to 800 students across years 7 to 10 over time.

Hindmarsh secure RNA Research and Pilot Manufacturing Facility, NSW

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the RNA Research and Pilot Manufacturing Facility Main Works package at Macquarie University.

David Last, State Manager – Construction NSW said, “The new RNA Research and Pilot Manufacturing Facility will be a groundbreaking facility enabling the research, development, and production of a broad spectrum of RNA technologies locally to treat a range of human and animal diseases, disorders, and infections. We are delighted to work with the Office of the Chief Scientist, RNA Australia and NSW Health Infrastructure to deliver this facility. Well done to everyone involved in securing this exceptional project.”

The new facility will conduct small-scale production of messenger RNA (mRNA), Plasmid DNA (pDNA) and lipid nanoparticles (LNP) encapsulation at a scale which will enable clinical trials of new therapeutics. Infections, cancer, genetic diseases, and many other health-related issues are potentially treatable with RNA technologies.
