Curtain goes up on new performing arts centre

WA

The curtain has gone up on Pinjarra Senior High School’s new performing arts centre.

WA Premier, Roger Cook, today officially opened the new performing arts centre, which is part of an $11.23 million upgrade at the school.

“These state-of-the-art facilities will provide local students with more opportunities to explore their creativity and talents in the arts and sport, without having to leave the Pinjarra Senior High School site,” said Premier Cook.

“My Government is committed to investing in schools across Western Australia to ensure students receive a quality education no matter where they live.”

The upgraded facilities feature new teaching spaces for drama and dance, with a green room with storage, kitchen facilities, change rooms, other secure storage, student and staff toilets, and staff areas.

Students had previously been using offsite facilities – located across the road from the school – for performing arts and sports classes. The new facilities mean they can now remain onsite for all lessons.

The new performing arts centre and sports hall were designed by Bunbury-based MCG Architects, and built by Universal Constructions.

“After many years of using facilities across the road, students can now benefit from state-of-the-art sports and performing arts facilities on site,” said Education Minister, Dr Tony Buti.

“I’m thrilled to deliver these facilities for Pinjarra Senior High School students, and look forward to delivering more important infrastructure upgrades for schools across Western Australia.”

The project is part of a significant capital works program of more than $1.5 billion the Cook Government is delivering to build and improve public education facilities across Western Australia.
