Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery has today announced that Carabiner Architects have been selected to design new early childhood facilities at Spring Hill Primary School in Wanneroo.
The new facilities – worth $2 million – will replace three existing demountable kindergarten classrooms with a new permanent building for the school’s youngest students.
The new building will include three kindergarten classrooms, two kitchens, student and staff toilets and store rooms.
With the project now in the design phase, construction is expected to start in February 2021 and completion is anticipated in January 2022.
The project is part of the McGowan Government’s WA Recovery Plan.
As stated by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:
“Enrolment data shows that Spring Hill Primary School is a popular choice for local families with young children.
“The new early childhood facilities will give teachers additional space to create exciting learning opportunities so students get the best start to their education.
“The McGowan Government is committed to ensuring that students across the State have access to the best possible school environments close to home.”
As stated by Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton:
“As a member of the School Board, I know how important these upgrades are to the school community.
“As a teacher for 27 years I know how important it is to be able to offer the best possible facilities for our young students starting their primary education journey.”
