Mr McGowan and Butler MLA John Quigley were outside Yanchep District High School last Friday calling for a $10.5 million upgrade to the school to proceed after it was left out of the state budget this year.

Education Minister Peter Collier said the budget focused on savings and so they had deferred the upgrades, but would consider them in future budget processes.

A spokesman for the minister said he did not have any confirmed plans to visit Yanchep but they were currently planning school visits for 2014 and would consider accommodating schools across the north metropolitan education region.

On November 29, Mr McGowan and Mr Quigley were joined by Opposition Transport spokesman Ken Travers and Mirrabooka MLA Janine Freeman to highlight delays with the Mitchell Freeway extension to Hester Avenue.

They also visited Quinns Beach last month calling for the State Government to provide funding to help the City of Wanneroo repair severe coastal erosion.
