BRAND NEW SCHOOLS OPEN FOR START OF STUDY YEAR
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.
