Early Childhood teaching building included in Beenyup Primary School build
Beenyup Primary School, located in the West Australian suburb of Byford, is already proving popular with locals, with nearly 180 students already enrolled after the $19 million build was completed earlier this year.
“The school’s vision of ‘Building brighter futures together’ affirms its staff members’ commitment to provide a strong sense of belonging and the opportunity for every child, every day to find joy, be challenged and experience success,” Premier Mark McGowan said.
He visited the new state-of-the-art school last week to view the learning spaces, which include three general teaching buildings, an art room, early childhood teaching building, and an administration area with adjoining dental therapy centre.
There is also a library, a covered assembly area with a canteen, and a music room. Children’s outdoor activities are well catered for, with hard courts, a cricket pitch and nets, and an oval.
The school was built to accommodate up to 540 students and is expected to ease enrolment pressure from the nearby Woodland Grove Primary School.
It was designed for wireless access to support up-to-date technology for student learning.
“The population of Byford is growing at a rapid rate, and that’s why fantastic new education facilities such as Beenyup Primary School are so important,” Mr McGowan said.
“We will continue to deliver quality education in the outer suburbs, where many families now live.”
