A record 293,000 students are in public schools this year.

SIXTEEN new public primary schools and five new secondary schools will open in WA by the start of 2019 as part of a $1.18 billion funding package for education infrastructure over the next four years.

Education Minister Peter Collier announced the new schools on Monday.

New primary schools will open at Ellenbrook (Annie’s Landing), Harrisdale, Alkimos (Trinity) and Baldivis (Rivergums) by the start of 2016, and at Alkimos (South West), Baldivis (North), Byford (South West) and Landsdale (East) by the start of 2017.

Four more new primary schools will open by the start of 2018 and another four will be open for the start of 2019 in locations yet to be decided.

Stage 1 of a new high school at Harrisdale will be completed for the start of 2017, a new high school will be built at Ellenbrook North for the start of 2018, and new high schools will be built at Yanchep, South Baldivis and Lakelands for the start of 2019.

“We have a record 293,000 students in public schools this year and this will continue to grow,” Mr Collier said.

“That’s why we are continuing to build and redevelop schools to ensure every student has the best possible modern facilities in which to learn.”
