Subi link to school name

The West Australian - - NEWS - Bethany Hi­att

Perth’s new high-rise school be­ing built next to the for­mer home of WA foot­ball is likely to in­clude a nod to Su­bi­aco in its name.

The Ed­u­ca­tion De­part­ment said con­sul­ta­tion was still tak­ing place to name the school un­der con­struc­tion next to Su­bi­aco Oval, which un­til now has been known by the plan­ning name of “In­ner City Col­lege”.

Of the four names un­der con­sid­er­a­tion, three in­clude a ref­er­ence to Su­bi­aco.

An ad­vi­sory group made up of par­ents, mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and prin­ci­pals of nearby pri­mary schools has pro­posed four pos­si­ble names for the school, which is ex­pected to open in 2020. They are In­ner City Col­lege, Su­bi­aco Col­lege, Su­bi­aco Com­mu­nity Col­lege and Su­bi­aco Sec­ondary Col­lege.

The de­part­ment said an on­line sur­vey closed re­cently and the new school’s prin­ci­pal, John Burke, was work­ing with stu­dents at pri­mary schools in the lo­cal in­take area to get their views.

A short list of names would then be sub­mit­ted to Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Sue Ellery for the fi­nal de­ci­sion.

The Su­bi­aco school, which will even­tu­ally cater for up to 2000 stu­dents, is ex­pected to ease en­rol­ments pres­sure on Church­lands Se­nior High School and Shen­ton Col­lege.
