    Western Australia’s oldest continually operating primary school now has a brand new ultra-modern library.

     

    Housing and Works Minister Michelle Roberts today officially opened Guildford Primary School’s new library on behalf of Education and Training Minister Mark  McGowan.

     

    Mrs Roberts said the new $633,000 facility replaced a small classroom which previously housed the school library.

     

    “The new library is fantastic, there is more room for more books and there is space for a computer laboratory to be established,” she said.

     

    Mrs Roberts said that Guildford Primary School is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year and opening a brand new learning centre is one of the best ways to celebrate.

     

    “The primary school has built an excellent academic reputation over the years and the new library will help feed hungry minds for generations.”

     

    The state-of-the-art library was designed by The Architecture Group (TAG) and constructed by SM Building and Maintenance.

     

    Education and Training Minister Mark McGowan said the new library was part of the $1.4billion the State Government was spending on school infrastructure projects across WA.

     

    “Guildford Primary School’s new library demonstrates the State Government’s commitment to providing a world-class education system to all Western Australians,” Mr McGowan said
