    Morley Senior High School was set for a major $1.5million upgrade of toilet facilities, Education and Training Minister Mark McGowan announced today.


    Mr McGowan said the toilet facilities would be completely refurbished with new fittings and fixtures, new tiling, improved lighting and ventilation, and fresh paintwork.


    “Morley Senior High School’s 940 students and staff will benefit from this upgrade which will create more modern facilities,” he said.


    “An architect will be appointed shortly, with the construction work expected to begin in early 2009 for completion later that year.


    “I visited Morley Senior High School earlier this year and inspected the school.


    “At the invitation of representatives of the P&C, I inspected some of the toilets to examine their condition.


    “I am pleased that as a consequence of that visit and the work of the P&C that the toilets will now be upgraded.


    “This is a great example of a local school community working together with Government to get a good outcome for students.”


    The Minister said the State Government was committed to enhancing education and training facilities for Western Australian students.


    “The State Government is spending $1.41billion on school infrastructure projects across WA,” Mr McGowan said.


    “We are spending $1.1billion on new schools and upgrades to existing schools and $300million on school maintenance.”
