What they say now

The capital works planned for Yanchep District High School have been deferred

-

18 Nov 2013 - New facilities promised by the Barnett Government for Yanchep District High School have now being deferred as a result of cuts to capital works program.

The new facilities for Yanchep District High School included two science laboratories, two design and technology workshops, arts studio, drama room, dance room, media studio, staff study, changing room and toilets costing an estimated $10.5million. These will now be deferred with no date being set for them to be built. 

The local community is now petitioning the Government to have this decision reversed.  

UPDATE

The $10.5m upgrade that was promised is now off the table. In May 2015 the Government announced that the upgrade was to be scrapped in favour of an entirely new school to be built by 2019. However the local community has responded angrily to this plan, stating that the current high school was in need of major works now.

In June 2015, a $1m renovation was announced for minor works, carpet replacement and IT needs
