    • $1million project gives school vibrant new administration block
    • New block eases space pressures in the rapidly growing school
    West Leederville Primary School staff are benefiting from a brand new purpose-built administration block.

    The block has added a vibrant new entrance to the 113-year-old heritage-listed school on Northwood Street, with interiors painted in bright colours and a creative use of space.

    Education Minister Liz Constable said the $1million project meant staff could work from modern and functional facilities.

    “The new administration block features a reception area, staff offices, photocopying room, secure storage, cleaners’ store room, communications room for computer servers and equipment, a universal access bathroom and medical area,” Dr Constable said.

    Principal Russell O’Neill said staff had been very excited about working from the new block, which had eased space pressures in the popular school.

    “Our school is growing rapidly and it is brilliant to have this modern new facility for our staff which will help them perform their important work in teaching students,” Mr O’Neill said.

    “The State Government is committed to providing high-quality school environments for Western Australia’s public school students,” Dr Constable said.
