Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery has visited Applecross Primary School today to officially open its new administration centre.
The $1.15 million building features a medical room, IT communications room, record storage space and a parent interview room.
The exciting upgrades will provide staff with access to the latest features and technology to provide an outstanding service to the school community.
These new facilities will complement the culturally and historically significant heritage-listed buildings at Applecross Primary School, which was first opened 115 years ago.
The school boasts excellent music, art and physical education programs, and students consistently achieve high academic results.
Applecross Primary School currently has 582 students from kindergarten to Year 6, with student numbers steadily increasing.
The project was part of the McGowan Government’s $200 million school maintenance blitz.
As stated by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:
“This Government is committed to improving schools across the State. We want WA kids to have access to the best education and support facilities possible.
“The upgrades at Applecross Primary School are part of a wide-ranging school improvement program that stretches to all corners of the State.”
As stated by Bateman MLA Kim Giddens:
“Applecross Primary School has a strong history of excellent academic results and these new facilities will ensure staff can continue to provide exceptional support for students and their families.
“I’m proud that our Government is continuing to support jobs and deliver important projects that will have a lasting benefit to the local community.”
