    Students and staff at Wattle Grove Primary School are set to benefit from a $2 million upgrade to provide additional classrooms for the growing school community.


    SPH Architecture + Interiors has been chosen to design a new general teaching block which includes four state-of-the-art classrooms as well as a new activity area, staff study and store room.


    The project will support seven local jobs with construction expected to start in late February 2021 and be completed in late September 2021.


    The construction of Wattle Grove Primary School's new teaching block is part of the McGowan Government's $492 million commitment to modernise Western Australian public schools over the next four years under the WA Recovery Plan, and also create local jobs.
