Brand new classrooms for Year 7s at Australind and Cape Naturaliste

The 2015 school year will see Year 7 students at Australind Senior High School and Cape Naturaliste College in new state-of-the-art classrooms.
 
Australind Senior High School’s new $7.8 million building, named the ‘Egret Wing’, will provide Year 7 students with purpose-built, modern classrooms and facilities. It has a performing arts space for dance and drama, and a food technology studio.
 
Cape Naturaliste College’s new $3.4 million building has five classrooms, an outdoor activity area, staff study area, and staff and student toilets. There is also a car park, hard courts and landscaping.
 
Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said the Royalties for Regions Year 7 relocation project would provide better educational opportunities for country students.
 
“Royalties for Regions is building sustainable regional communities to ensure a brighter future for our next generation,” Mr Redman said.
 
The move of Year 7 public school students to secondary schools in Western Australia is in line with the majority of other Australian States and Territories and most private schools in this State.
 
This upgrade has been part of a wider package of reforms worth $229.6 million in readying Year 7s for their move to high school, with Royalties for Regions funding providing $42.6 million.
