Amber-Jade Sanderson and WA Labor commit to:
- Upgrade learning spaces at Camboon Primary School
- Build a new library at North Morley Primary School
- Build a new administration block and nature playground at Weld Square Primary School
- Install shade sails at Noranda Primary School
- Upgrades to the Early Learning area and canteen at Morley Primary School
- Upgrade STEM learning facilities and help rebrand Mirrabooka Senior High School to Dianella Secondary College.
WA Labor candidate for Morley Amber-Jade Sanderson today carried out an education blitz in the electorate of Morley with Shadow Education Minister Sue Ellery, to give much needed funding to local schools.
It comes after Ms Sanderson announced last week that she and WA Labor will provide $50 million for upgrades to John Forrest Senior High School and $1.5 million towards a new multi-purpose undercover area at Morley High School.
The latest round of education commitments by Ms Sanderson will see much needed upgrades carried out across schools to provide the best possible learning environment for students.
As part of today’s announcement, Ms Sanderson said walls will be replaced in learning facilities at Camboon Primary School to minimise noise, improve accessibility and enable the use of new technology. The schools early learning centre will also have areas refitted.
North Morley Primary School will receive a new library and Weld Square Primary School will get funding for a new administration block as well as $60,000 for a Nature Playground.
“WA Labor is committed to investing in public education,” Ms Sanderson said.
“Most of our local schools are 30 or 40 years old, some are badly in need of upgrades and improvements to facilities to provide the best learning environment for our kids.”
Shadow Education Minister Sue Ellery said teachers and students have been doing a great job in these aging facilities but it is important for students to learn and staff to teach in the best possible environment.
“These announcements are all part of WA Labor’s commitment to ensure schools are equipped to give children a 21st century education," she said.
“Investing in school infrastructure will create jobs and stimulate WA’s economy. This is part of our fresh approach to WA.”
