New Aveley support centre

AN education support centre will be built at Aveley North Primary School to help cater for young students with autism or disability.

Construction of the specialist facility will begin this year before opening for students in 2019.

Students will be able to share the state-of-the-art amenities in the education support hub at nearby Aveley Secondary College, including the hydrotherapy pool.

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery announced the new building last week during a visit to Aveley North Primary School, where kindergarten and pre-primary students started the school year.

They are the first students to attend the new school, which opened with temporary facilities ahead of the completion of permanent buildings in 2019.

Once completed, the school will include five permanent teaching blocks, an administration area, a dental therapy centre, an undercover area, a library, and extensive sporting facilities with multi-purpose courts and an oval.

The McGowan Government is investing more than $477 million to build new schools and upgrade existing facilities across the State, ensuring students have access to modern education facilities.

Ms Ellery said the new support centre meant families of both primary and secondary students would have access to specialist autism and disability support systems and facilities in the area.

Swan Hills MLA Jessica Shaw said at present students were travelling at least an hour a day to the nearest support centre in Bayswater.
