    "This is a significant project at Lynwood Senior High School; it will see ageing infrastructure replaced with new buildings, to create top rate learning and recreation spaces for students.

     

    "Students will enjoy hitting the stage in a new performing arts centre, while the new sports hall will be an outstanding space for physical education.

     

    "The project is part of the State Government's commitment to enhance facilities at 63 public schools around Western Australia."

     

    Comments attributed to Cannington MLA Bill Johnston:

     

    "The staff and students at Lynwood have achieved some fantastic results with existing facilities after the Liberal Party neglected the school for years.
