    • Programmed Facility Management (PFM) appointed to carry out works at Joondalup Primary School and Joondalup Education Support Centre
    • A total of $300,000 will be spent on upgrading access ramps and walkways at Joondalup Education Support Centre and Joondalup Primary School
    • In addition, $350,000 has been allocated for additional car bays at Joondalup Primary School
    • Construction works are expected to start in mid-2021 

    Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery has today announced that PFM will work on upgrades at both Joondalup Primary School and Joondalup Education Support Centre.

     

    Joondalup Education Support Centre provides specialist education for just over 100 students with disability and special education needs.

     

    PFM will commence work on a $300,000 project to improve access to classrooms and enhance learning areas for students, which will include adding ramps and widening pathways.

     

    With this project now in the planning stage, construction is expected to start in mid-2021 with completion anticipated in late 2021.

     

    Situated on the same site on Blue Mountain Drive, Joondalup Primary School will receive a much-needed car park upgrade worth $350,000 to improve safety for students and pedestrians and provide additional parking space for parents.

     

    Planning has also started on this project, with works expected to begin in mid-2021.
