BYFORD Secondary College is now complete, with a new $15.9 million facility officially opened last week.

The double-storey building was part of the third stage of construction works and incorporates resources for the school’s Year 11 and 12 students including 15 general and two education support classrooms, three IT laboratories, a business studies classroom and a lecture theatre.

Education and training minister Sue Ellery, who officially opened the new building, said it would be well used for the school’s first group of Year 12 students this year.

“These facilities will provide a modern learning environment for secondary school students, as well as high-tech resources for information technology programs,” she said.

“It is a momentous year for the college with the foundation students now in Year 12.

“The impressive modern facilities and the programs the school offers, such as the academic extension program in partnership with UWA, ensure students in the rapidly expanding Byford area can access a high-quality education.”
