THIRTEEN Mandurah schools have received just under $2 million in government funding.

The money can go towards resurfacing playing surfaces, repairing car parks, structural work (roof repairs, external painting, electrical work etc), classroom refreshment, bathroom upgrades, administration upgrades, transportable classroom removal or replacements as well as design and technology upgrades and general work.

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said the students were the main focus behind the funding.

“We want to improve all public schools in Western Australia so students are learning in inspiring modern facilities, creating greater opportunities for students and teachers,” she said.

“We are delivering on our commitment to improve schools around the State, regardless of where they are located, and this package will deliver huge benefits to hundreds of schools.”
