Education Matters

Multi-million dollar makeover for Busselton SHS

Ministerial Statement

Busselton Senior High School staff and students are enjoying modern upgraded facilities thanks to a State Government investment of $3million.

Education Minister Peter Collier said existing buildings had been replaced with new teaching spaces, extended and upgraded to increase functionality, bringing them into line with the design standards of a new modern secondary school.

The modernisation of original building features is a welcome change for staff, students and local families, who have embraced new campus additions and classroom resources.

Mr Collier said the upgrade works at Busselton Senior High School had given the school’s ageing facilities a new lease of life, improving standards across the board.

“The State Government invested $3million to provide much-needed upgrades to school facilities which benefit the students and the whole community in further developing their education and training,” he said.

Valuable facilities such as the library; cafeteria; assembly area; staff room; toilets and change rooms; and the year 8 and 9 learning area were all upgraded, with the school’s covered walkways and quadrangle also restored.

“The school now boasts a new student services facility which includes a reception area; school psychologist office; year co-ordinators’ offices; interview and conference rooms; and a universal access toilet,” the Minister said.

“These upgrades - along with the school’s Trade Training Centre for engineering, building and construction, carpentry and hospitality - will continue to bring Busselton Senior High School to the forefront of vocational education and training in WA.  Next year the school will also benefit from a new car park for administration staff and visitors.”
