The McGowan Government has announced five new primary schools will open in 2022 for growing suburbs across Perth, including Calleya's own Treeby.

The investment of more than $116 million will ease enrolment pressure at existing primary schools and provide families with state-of-the-art schools close to home. Treeby will see construction of the new $20.3 million Treeby (Banjup West) Primary School (planning name) which will be built with permanent capacity for 540 students.

"I understand how important it is for families to have access to fantastic schools in their local areas. Schools are the heart of our local communities and provide children with essential learning opportunities and high-quality education to set them up for the best start at life. My Government is committed to building schools and strengthening communities to meet the needs of families in our fastest-growing suburbs. Jobs are our number one focus and the construction of these five new schools will also create at least 1,500 jobs." - Premier Mark McGowan
