$10m upgrade begins in 2018
IMPROVEMENTS TO TECH CENTRE, SCIENCE LABS
A $10 MILLION redevelopment at Darling Range Sports College in Forrestfield is set to start next year as part of the State Government’s $465 million investment in infrastructure at WA public schools.
Darling Range Sports College is the only specialist sports school in WA. Students here train with elite coaches while completing their secondary education.
The school also delivers an academic extension program and has a strong focus on technology and the arts.
The works include refurbishments to the school’s design and technology centre, science labs and food technology classrooms.
Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said the school supported its students to extend their individual talents under the guidance of specialist staff.
“Darling Range Sports College is a great example of innovative schooling,” she said.
“The range of programs available ensures each student has a distinct pathway.
“The new and refurbished facilities will underpin the delivery of its excellent programs.”
Member for Forrestfield Stephen Price said this major upgrade had been a long time coming.
“The improved teaching facilities will enhance student outcomes, particularly in some vocational areas of design and technology, food technology science and visual arts,” he said.
The work is expected to be completed for the 2021 year.
