Students in Years 4 to 6 at Inglewood Primary School have started the year learning in the school’s exciting new double-storey classroom block.
Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery officially opened the modern $3.5 million building today.
The state-of-the-art facility overlooks the school’s oval and includes six classrooms, an activity room, a meeting room for teachers, storage and student toilets.
Students are using the activity room for various subjects and activities, including art and robotics.
The classroom block is in addition to a new science laboratory. The school was selected in the first round of 100 public primary schools to have an existing classroom converted into a science laboratory.
Inglewood Primary School has nearly 600 students.
As stated by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:
“Inglewood Primary School has been operating since 1914, so these brand new facilities are an exciting addition to the historic school.
“I’m thrilled that these modern classrooms and the science laboratory are inspiring students and giving them greater opportunities to extend their learning experiences.
“We want students to have every chance to achieve their very best so they can have many options in the future.”
As stated by Maylands MLA Lisa Baker:
“The new classroom block reflects the passion of the school community who lobbied hard for the building in its current form.
“The building is an outstanding addition to Inglewood and it will be exciting to see the new science lab opened soon as well.
“The new facilities will help bright young minds learn STEM skills and arm them with skills for the future.”
