DWA Architects has been appointed to design $2.1 million upgrades at Leeming Senior High School.
The project includes refurbished science and art specialist classrooms to provide a modern learning environment for students and support the school’s successful specialist programs, while creating local jobs during construction.
The school offers a Science and Technology Academy specialist program and a Japanese specialist program, in addition to an extended academic curriculum in English, mathematics and science.
The school also has a thriving performing arts department, with professional facilities for staff to deliver lessons in drama, dance, media and visual arts.
The latest upgrades are part of the McGowan Government’s WA Recovery Plan and are expected to support an additional seven jobs.
The unprecedented Major School Upgrade package – totalling $492.2 million – includes $319.2 million of new funding for upgrades and refurbishments at 63 public schools around the State, stimulating economic growth and supporting around 1,850 jobs.
As stated by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:
“This is a wonderful upgrade for Leeming Senior High School, which is committed to giving students the best possible environment and resources.
“Now the school’s refurbished specialist classrooms will match the high-quality learning opportunities available for students.”
As stated by Jandakot MLA Yaz Mubarakai:
“I’ve been privileged to work with Minister Ellery throughout my term to deliver upgrades for all Jandakot schools.
“As a parent, I know the difference that refurbished specialist classrooms with state-of-the-art equipment have on our children’s futures. I know that there will be many Leeming parents who are thrilled about this announcement.”
