Premier Mark McGowan has visited Wanneroo Secondary College today to officially open the state-of-the-art sporting facilities.
Students will enjoy a brand new sports hall with professional-quality sports flooring and equipment. The college’s four existing tennis courts have also been refurbished to ensure students have access to high-quality infrastructure.
The $5 million project was a key McGowan Government election commitment.
Construction was completed by local Western Australian company Crothers Construction and was delivered ahead of schedule.
The McGowan Government is undertaking a major investment in schools in Perth’s northern suburbs, including new early childhood education centres for East Wanneroo and Spring Hill Primary Schools, a performing arts centre for Wanneroo Secondary College and new classrooms for Joseph Banks Secondary College.
As stated by Premier Mark McGowan:
“I am proud to officially open the impressive new sports facilities at Wanneroo Secondary College.
“We’re delivering on a key election commitment to make sure students in Western Australia are learning in the best possible facilities.
“As part of the WA Recovery Plan, my Government is investing an unprecedented $492.2 million in school infrastructure across the State, which is supporting WA’s economic recovery and delivering fantastic learning facilities.”
As stated by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:
“There are more than 1,100 students enrolled at Wanneroo Secondary College who will benefit from these state-of-the-art new facilities.
“We want to make sure students have every opportunity to thrive and succeed at school, and these modern facilities help create a welcoming and exciting learning environment.
“Wanneroo Secondary College has a fantastic physical education program and I look forward to seeing how students make use of these new facilities to pursue their sporting goals.”
As stated by Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton:
