    Aveley North Primary School is complete, with about 345 students from kindergarten to Year 6 launching into the new school year in their brand new classrooms.

     

    The early childhood facilities opened last year and today, Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery opened the completed $21.9 million facilities which include a state-of-the-art education support centre.

     

    This is the first education support facility in the greater Ellenbrook area for primary school students.

     

    Contemporary education is at the forefront of the school's design, with advanced technology integrated into every classroom and specialist areas across the school for digital technologies, visual arts, music, health and physical education.

     

    The support centre and six teaching blocks are complemented by a dental therapy centre, extensive sporting facilities including multi-purpose courts and an oval, a covered assembly area with a canteen and music room, a library, a staff area with a conference room, an administration block, and staff and parent parking.

     

    The school caters for up to 580 students.
