High school up­grade plans still un­der wraps

Guardian Express - - STREET WATCH -

DE­TAILS are still scarce about a $4 mil­lion up­grade to Mt Law­ley High School.

Premier Mark McGowan and Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Sue Ellery vis­ited the school last week af­ter hand­ing down the State Bud­get, which in­cluded fund­ing for the school.

Ms Ellery said the money was for a “re­fur­bish­ment” but did not re­veal more.

“It is a school that has got a big pop­u­la­tion so they re­ally want that $4 mil­lion and are pleased that we are able to of­fer it,” she said.

“We also think we are go­ing to take the pop­u­la­tion pres­sure off Mt Law­ley when we build the new school at Kitch­ener Park.”

Mt Law­ley MLA Simon Mill­man said the school’s spe­cial­ist de­sign and tech­nol­ogy and sci­ence pro­grams would thrive with the up­grade of spe­cial­ist fa­cil­i­ties. Up­grades at the 62-year-old school will start in 2019.
