Massive news this morning with Premier Mark McGowan announcing a brand new high school to be built on the Kitchener Oval site, next to the soon to be vacated Subiaco Oval.
According to the press release, the new school will open in 2020 and is expected to cater for 2000 students by 2025.
The Premier had this to say on his website.
We have moved swiftly to come up with a complete plan that not only addresses the significant student enrolment pressures in existing nearby schools, but also establish an exciting future for the Subiaco Oval site.
- Mark McGowan
Key points from the announcement include:
- Construction to start mid-2018 and school to open in 2020 for Year 7 students
- Perth Modern School to remain on existing site as WA's academic select school
- New redevelopment to create thousands of jobs for Western Australians
Let's just hope they come up with a catchier name than "Inner City College".
