    • New $1.35 million administration building opened
    • Better working environment for staff to support students 

    Wilson Primary School has received a facelift, with a new administration building, medical room and car park added to the southern suburbs school.


    Education Minister Peter Collier visited the school today to officially open the new facilities.


    "In the past, the school's administration team was crowded into one office," Mr Collier said.


    "Staff can now carry out their vital work leading and supporting students' education, from facilities designed to suit their daily work needs."


    The Minister said Wilson Primary School had a diverse student population with families from 23 different countries and cultural groups.


    "Teachers are focused on delivering a high quality education and providing literacy and numeracy support for all students to achieve their best," he said.


    The new building also includes office space for the school psychologist, an interview room for private meetings with parents, a medical room and records room.


    "This upgrade reflects the State Government's commitment to providing high quality school environments for Western Australian students," Mr Collier said.
