    • Official opening of International School of WA at new location in Doubleview
    • Students benefit from $18.65 million facilities
    • School adds to the range of educational options available for families - a strength of the education system in Western Australia

    Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery has today officially opened the International School of WA at its new location in Doubleview.

     

    The $18.65 million school included a major redevelopment of the former Doubleview Primary School facilities to create general classrooms, a library and visual and performing arts rooms.

     

    In addition, a new building with an administration and staffroom as well as science, home economics and IT laboratories was constructed. Also included in the works was landscaping, a hard court and sports hall with change rooms.

     

    The International School of WA caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 12, whose families have moved to Perth from overseas for work. The school actively supports the State's international profile and mining industry.

     

    Offering the International Baccalaureate, the school provides an international education option for children of expatriates, enabling them to continue their learning as their families follow employment opportunities around the world.

     

    The International School of WA is located next to the brand new $15.5 million Doubleview Primary School which officially opened in 2019.
