Construction has started on a major upgrade at Pinjarra Senior High School, which will see students benefit from a new state-of-the-art performing arts centre and sports hall.
Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery visited the school today in Pinjarra to turn the first sod on the $10.38 million project.
The performing arts centre and sports hall will be combined in one new building and provide much-needed modern facilities on site.
The impressive performance space will include areas for drama, dance and music including a green room, kitchen facilities, staff areas, storage, a front of house area, a bio-box, an extensive gallery and exhibition space, and a 209 seat theatre and dance studio.
The new sports hall features internal courts, individual change rooms and toilets for staff and students, with associated lockers and equipment stores.
Bunbury-based architectural firm MCG Architects designed the new facilities.
