THE new $31.3 million Henley Brook Primary School, Perth’s newest school, welcomed it’s first cohort of students last week, following its official opening by Education Minister Dr Tony Buti.
The school will cater for students from kindergarten to Year 6 to meet the needs of local families in the area and provide high-quality education options for students in Perth’s growing north-eastern suburbs.
The state-of-the-art school has an administration block, early childhood teaching block, three teaching blocks with general learning areas, an inclusive education room and specialist rooms for art and science.
It is also equipped with a library, covered assembly area, music room, canteen, oval and hard courts. Rooftop solar panels have been installed to harness sustainable energy.
Henley Brook Primary School will provide enrolment relief for nearby Brabham Primary School.
Works on Brabham East Primary school, to open in 2025, will begin shortly.
Thousands of students across the state will benefit from a range of new school facilities opening this week, including the Brabham Primary School offsite early childhood education facility.
Education Minister Dr Tony Buti said he wanted to make sure all students and their families – no matter their circumstances – have access to a quality education.
“I want to ensure environments in which our students are learning are of the very best standard, and I want our staff to have the support they need to focus on teaching.
“Schools like Henley Brook Primary make this possible and I am thrilled to officially open it.”
West Swan MLA Rita Saffioti said it was exciting to see Henley Brook Primary School officially open its doors, providing state-of-the-art education facilities for our growing community.
"From new primary schools like Henley Brook and Brabham East, to free public transport for school students, we are doing everything we can to make it easier for families in West Swan.”
