North Ellenbrook Secondary School delayed by 3 years

What they promised

North Ellenbrook Secondary School will open by 2015

What they say now

North Ellenbrook Secondary School will open by 2018

-

18 Nov 2013 - In November 2013 the Barnett Government committed to build the new North Ellenbrook Secondary School to open in 2015. In the 2013-14 Budget the money to build the new school was pushed out and the school will not be completed until 2018.

The decision to delay the construction of the new North Ellenbrook Secondary School until 2018 will put considerable pressure on the existing Ellenbrook Secondary College. 

The existing Ellenbrook Secondary College is on a very constrained site. The projected enrolment is expected to increase from 1,490 in 2014 to 2,137 by 2017.

As a result of the failure of the Barnett Government to build the new school within the promised timeframes, Ellenbrook Secondary College will be forced to operate with 29 demountable classrooms by 2017.
