The State Government has announced a new primary school is planned for Aveley North.

The new primary school will meet the needs of families living in Perth's rapidly developing northern suburbs.

 

"Confidence in public schools continues to grow and the Liberal National Government is responding to increasing student enrolments in growing areas of Perth with four new schools planned for the 2019 school year," Education Minister Peter Collier said.

  
The new school in Aveley North will be built for 540 students at cost of $17.3 million and will ease enrolment pressure on Aveley Primary School and Ellen Stirling Primary School.
 
"The schools will each be air-cooled and have general teaching buildings, an early childhood building, music and art/craft facilities, an administration building, library, covered assembly area and canteen, landscaped courtyards, hard courts, an oval, staffroom and parking," Mr Collier said.
 

Aveley North Primary School will be located on the corner of Egerton Drive and Strinesdale Boulevard. The planning for the local-intake area will commence late 2017.
