Construction has started on a major upgrade at Pinjarra Senior High School, which will see more that 700 students benefit from a new performing arts centre and sports hall.
The $10.38 million project will provide modern facilities with all things sport and entertainment including a 209 seat theatre.
Member for Murray-Wellington Robyn Clarke and education and training minister Sue Ellery turned soil on Thursday.
“It has been several years in the making with the support of both the school community and the wider community to make this achievement happen,” member for Murray-Wellington Robyn Clark said.
“These new facilities will make the school a modern and exciting place to learn for students and I can’t wait to see the project take shape.”
Education and training minister Sue Ellery said the project would support the arts and physical education areas.
“I am excited for the students and staff at Pinjarra Senior High School who are one step closer to being able to enjoy these fantastic new facilities,” the education minister said.
Bunbury-based architectural firm MCG Architects designed the new facilities.
