WORK on a $5 million upgrade at Wanneroo Secondary College is expected to finish late next year.

Premier Mark McGowan was due to visit the school to turn the first sods for a sports hall and tennis court upgrades today, December 5.

“The college is one of six in the State to run a specialist AFL program, and has a very successful physical education program, with students taking part in various inter-school competitions throughout the year,” Mr McGowan said.

WA company Crothers Construction received the contract to build the facilities, with work expected to finish in December 2020.

Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton, who was a former student, said the gymnasium was one of her 2017 election commitments and would support the school’s sports programs.

“This new gymnasium will allow our students to participate in facilities that will be modern, bigger and better,” she said.
