AS chil­dren all around WA pre­pare for their first day back at school this week, some lo­cal stu­dents will get to en­joy the ex­pe­ri­ence at a brand new school.

Two new pri­mary schools will open their doors for the first time to­mor­row: South­ern Grove Pri­mary School in South­ern River and Aspiri Pri­mary School in Piara Waters.

Both schools will cater to kinder­garten and pre-pri­mary stu­dents in 2018, ex­pand­ing through to in­clude years 1 to 6 in 2019.

South­ern Grove prin­ci­pal Re­becca Burns said they had more than 80 stu­dents en­rolled to start at the school.

“It is an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity to be a foun­da­tion prin­ci­pal at a brand new school and I cer­tainly feel very priv­i­leged to have this op­por­tu­nity,” she said.

“Our stu­dents are for­tu­nate to be the foun­da­tion stu­dents at a brand new school with dy­namic staff, fab­u­lous na­ture play ar­eas and state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy.

“I hope our stu­dents will de­velop a love of learn­ing as a re­sult of our per­son­alised teach­ing and learn­ing pro­grams and can be­come con­fi­dent, in­de­pen­dent learn­ers.”

South­ern River MLA Terry Healy said South­ern Grove would ease pres­sure on other lo­cal pri­mary schools and promised to be­come the heart of the lo­cal area, with a strong sense of com­mu­nity.
