AVELEY North Primary School is complete, with about 345 students from kindergarten to Year 6 launching into the new school year in their brand new classrooms.

The early childhood facilities opened last year and on Wednesday Education Minister Sue Ellery opened the completed $21.9 million facilities which include a state-of-the-art education support centre, the first of its kind in the greater Ellenbrook area for primary school students.

“I am pleased to be able to open this new school which will provide students with first-class facilities in a modern learning environment,” she said.

“There has been a very strong commitment to building an outstanding school that gives students, the best opportunities to learn and achieve their potential.”

Swan Hills MLA Jessica Shaw said the education support facility provided inclusive and high-quality learning opportunities for children at all levels.

“There is an incredible buzz around the brand new facilities at Aveley North Primary School,” she said.

“Anticipation throughout the community has been building with significant population growth in suburbs through the eastern corridor of Perth including Aveley, The Vines, Belhus and Ellenbrook.”

The support centre and six teaching blocks are complemented by a dental therapy centre, extensive sporting facilities including multi-purpose courts and an oval, a covered assembly area with a canteen and music room, a library, a staff area with a conference room, an administration block, and staff and parent parking.

The school caters for up to 580 students.
