Pinjarra Senior High School students are set to benefit from a new construction project which will provide modern facilities on site and create local jobs.
• $10.4 million announced for new performing arts centre and sports hall at Pinjarra SHS
• Part of McGowan Government’s $5.5 billion WA Recovery Plan
• Essential facilities expected to be completed during the 2022 school year
• 216 jobs created during construction
Premier Mark McGowan and Murray-Wellington MLA Robyn Clarke were at the school today to announce a new performing arts centre and sports hall for the school, expected to be completed during the 2022 school year.
The sports hall and performing arts centre will include teaching spaces for drama and dance with a green room and storage, kitchen facilities, change rooms, secure storage, student and staff toilets, and staff areas.
Students currently use offsite facilities located across the road from the school for performing arts and sports classes. The new facilities will allow students to remain on site for all lessons.
Pinjarra Senior High School was established in 1921 with the current facilities built in 1951. It currently has around 800 students from years 7 to 12, with enrolments expected to increase steadily over the next 10 years.
The WA Recovery Plan includes $5.5 billion in measures to help drive economic and social recovery across the State.
