    • New primary school for Henley Brook to be designed by Carabiner Architects
    • $26.35 million project expected to be completed for the 2024 school year

    Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery announced today the appointment of Carabiner Architects to design a new primary school in Henley Brook.

     

    Henley Brook South Primary School (planning name) will cater for 430 students from kindergarten to Year 6.

     

    Master planning of the design is under way, with construction of the school scheduled to commence towards the end of this year.

     

    The brand new school will include an administration block, early childhood teaching block, teaching blocks with general learning areas, an inclusive education room and specialist rooms for art and science.

     

    It will have a library, covered assembly area, music room, oval and hard courts, with rooftop panels to also be installed.

     

    The new school will provide enrolment relief for the nearby Brabham Primary School and another education option for families in the growing area.

     

    Works at the school are expected to be completed in time to welcome students for the 2024 school year.

     

    Comments attributed to Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:

     

    "This new school will have state-of-the-art facilities, including specialist classrooms for science and art, and be fitted with solar panels.

     

    "I am always proud to deliver the highest quality education options for local families and I look forward to this school becoming central to the growing Henley Brook community when it opens to students in 2024."

     

    Comments attributed to West Swan MLA Rita Saffioti:

     

    "This is a key milestone for the building of Henley Brook South Primary School, which is going to be a fantastic addition to the local area, particularly for families with young children wanting the best education opportunities for their kids.

     

    "I can't wait to see this exciting project come to life, and for the first students learning and playing in the school's grounds to begin in less than two years' time."
