  • Victoria Park Primary school to receive $7.1 Million for major upgrade
  • 10 new classrooms to be included in new amenities block
  • New building to open in 2021 to accommodate the growing area

Treasurer and Victoria Park MLA Ben Wyatt today announced this year’s State Budget will include $7.1 Million for a major upgrade of Victoria Park Primary School.

“Victoria Park Primary School has the second smallest land footprint in Western Australia, so has found it particularly difficult to accommodate its increasing student population.” Treasurer Ben Wyatt said.

“As both the local member and Treasurer, I’m delighted to see this great local primary school receive funding for such an important upgrade to the school facilities.”

Planning and design for the construction to provide 4 early childhood classrooms, and 6 general learning classrooms for Years 1-3 is set to commence in June.

New building will also provide:

  • Additional toilets,
  • Kitchens,
  • Storage areas,
  • Upper level outdoor playground adjacent to the classrooms.

“We are committed to providing children with a high-quality education in the best possible learning facilities.” Minister for Education and Training Sue Ellery said.

“More jobs will be created from our investment in providing quality infrastructure in public schools across Western Australia.”

Ground level parking will be provided directly below the classrooms and will incorporate a pick-up/drop off point for parents.

Population growth in the area is expected to see the primary school population grow from 511 students in 2019 to 664 students by 2027.
