Victor P Taffa

  • One of four new primary schools to be opened in 2020
  • Caversham South Primary School to be named Caversham Valley Primary School

A new primary school in Caversham, opening in 2020, will be officially named Caversham Valley Primary School.

“Students living in the Caversham area will now have the option of attending Caversham Primary School and Caversham Valley Primary School, both fantastic schools that will inspire student learning.” Minister for Education and Training Sue Ellery said.

“With four new primary schools to open next year, and an additional five in 2021, the McGowan Government’s investment in education will benefit families now and in years to come.”

This is part of a $74.5 Million development of four new primary schools that will be opened next year in the suburbs of:

  • Baldivis,
  • Banksia Grove,
  • Byford,
  • Caversham.

Name was decided following consultation with school staff and the local community, and because of its location in a valley, between the Swan River and Bennett Brook, many students who attend will also be from the nearby Swan Valley.

“I’m delighted that Caversham Valley Primary will open in 2020.” Midland MLA Michelle Roberts said.

“It fulfils the commitment that I made to the people of Caversham during the election campaign.”

$17.3 Million primary school will accommodate 430 students from kindergarten to Year 6.
