Kalgoorlie school rebuild key to brighter future

Students and staff at Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School are set to benefit from more than 24 brand new classrooms, after a major redevelopment of the school.

Education Minister Peter Collier today opened three new classroom blocks, a cafeteria, a refurbished design and technology centre, and upgraded gymnasium change rooms.

"These high-quality new facilities provide the opportunity for staff and students at Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School to build a positive educational future."

A survey of the Kalgoorlie community last year found parents and community members wanted schools where students felt safe and supported.

"The redevelopment, which fulfils an election commitment, was about creating a place where students want to learn and grow and lay the foundations of a bright future," Mr Collier said.

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said Royalties for Regions was committed to improving educational opportunities in regional Western Australia.

"Regional students deserve access to a high standard of education facilities, and the staff and students at Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School will now have access to specialist subject teaching and facilities," Mr Redman said.

"Royalties for Regions is building sustainable regional communities to ensure a brighter future for our next generation."

The final stage of the redevelopment, to be completed next year, will include demolition of old teaching blocks and the construction of a new education support centre and a visual arts building.
