  • Construction to start on shared ovals at new secondary school in Lakelands, Mandurah
  • New school to open with 600 students in 2019 with capacity for 1,500 students by 2022

Families living in the City of Mandurah will soon be able to benefit from multiple ovals, which will be constructed this year for the new public secondary school in Lakelands.

“My Government is committed to delivering the highest standard of education, and the new Lakelands secondary school will be an exceptional choice for families in the rapidly growing north Mandurah area.” Premier Mark McGowan said.

“We want all students to be excited about learning. Having a brand new school with outstanding facilities will give students the contemporary learning environment in which they can excel.”

Ovals will be built on land near the school which is currently under construction and will be shared by the City of Mandurah and students when the school opens in 2019.

City of Mandurah will also provide funding for additional facilities for community members which will complement the recreational areas.

“New school will make a big difference it will not only provide a first-class education for local secondary students but also an excellent community facility.” Mandurah MLA David Templeman said.

  • Facilities for students with disability including a hydrotherapy pool;
  • Digital media facilities;
  • Performing arts classrooms;
  • Sports hall and fitness centre;
  • Technology learning area.

Year 7 students will be the first to attend the school. It will open with capacity for 600 students and will grow by 2022 when the second stage of construction is complete, allowing for a total of 1,500 students from Years 7-12.

“New Lakelands high school and district open space will bring huge benefits to the northern suburbs of Mandurah.” City of Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams said.
