    • Upgraded school canteen at Como Secondary College officially opened
    • $1 million project includes extended cafeteria
    • Additional location for school events provided in upgraded facility

    Premier Mark McGowan and Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery today officially opened the new canteen at Como Secondary College.

     

    The $1 million upgrade includes an extended school cafeteria with closable doors and large ceilings fans.

     

    These extensions allow staff and students to come together and enjoy their break times in a comfortable location protected from all kinds of weather.

     

    The canteen area, which was able to remain open throughout the development and provide its usual support to students, was also refurbished.

     

    The school's new state-of-the-art cafeteria is also designed to be used as an alternative learning location, with the facility able to host exhibitions and performances, and work as a classroom and meeting room.

     

    The project was funded as part of the McGowan Government's WA Recovery Plan, which is supporting Western Australia's economic recovery through a $492.2 million investment in upgrades and refurbishments at public schools across WA.
