Planning is underway to design a new Aboriginal Education Centre at Swan View Senior High School.
Architecture firm Mode has been chosen to create the look and layout of the new facilities, which will be designed to give students a modern learning environment.
The school first opened in 1977 and now has more than 640 students. The new facility will include two general learning areas, three offices and a small kitchen to cater for the needs of students, staff and their partnership with the local community.
Construction is expected to start in June 2021 with completion anticipated in March 2022.
The refurbishments at Swan View Senior High School are part of the McGowan Government’s $5.5 billion WA Recovery Plan to modernise Western Australian public schools.
As stated by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:
“I am thrilled that Swan View Senior High School will be receiving these exciting upgrades to provide an Aboriginal Education Centre which will provide the best possible opportunities for students to achieve.
“These modern facilities will not only benefit the students of today but also local families with school-aged children in the future.”
As stated by Midland MLA Michelle Roberts:
“This is a fantastic commitment by the McGowan Government to Swan View Senior High School.
“It will significantly improve and update the facilities for current and future students.”
