    • Premier and Albany MLA Rebecca Stephens open new buildings at Mount Lockyer Primary School
    • Major $16.59 million project delivers contemporary education facilities
    • Redevelopment includes four new general classroom blocks, new administration block, new library and undercover assembly area

    The redeveloped Mount Lockyer Primary School, including four new general classroom blocks, a new library and new covered assembly area, has officially been opened.

     

    Premier Mark McGowan and Albany MLA Rebecca Stephens today opened and toured the new state-of-the-art facilities, which provide a modern learning and teaching environment and activity spaces.

     

    The McGowan Government made a commitment in 2017 to upgrade the school, but instead decided to replace its old and outdated buildings. The much-needed redevelopment was announced to the whole school community at an assembly in October 2019.

     

    The $16.59 million staged project has delivered four new general classroom blocks, each of which contains four classrooms, a new administration block, a new library/staffroom block and a new undercover assembly area.

     

    The school's oval and play areas have also been redeveloped.

     

    In addition to the new buildings, six existing classrooms are also being refurbished, with works expected to be completed before the end of the 2022 school year.

     

    Comments attributed to Premier Mark McGowan:

     

    "This redevelopment delivers terrific new facilities for the Mount Lockyer community, ensuring local young people have a great start to their education.

     

    "The new buildings provide a modern learning environment for both students and teachers, and I thank the local community for their keen involvement in the redevelopment."

     

    Comments attributed to Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:

     

    "Mount Lockyer Primary School is at the heart of this close-knit community, and its transformation into a modern environment for students, school staff and families to learn and engage with each other will ensure it continues to be.

     

    "The entire Mount Lockyer Primary School community should be proud of this redevelopment - the impressive new facilities are a testament to the passion and dedication of everyone involved."

     

    Comments attributed to Albany MLA Rebecca Stephens:

     

    "I'm delighted to see Mount Lockyer Primary School rebuilt and restored with the support of the local community.

     

    "Local parents Bianca D'Aprile and Jenelle Pocock, in particular, worked tirelessly to bring this project to fruition and I'm sure the new facilities will be enjoyed by students, school staff and parents alike."
