North Parmelia Primary School gets spruce up
North Parmelia Primary School has received a fresh look thanks to the school’s P and C and the State Government Local Projects, Local Jobs program.
The school has been repainted to give it a more clean and appealing appearance, with the final touches to take place in the new year.
The school’s P and C and school contributed $20,000 and $40,000 to the project respectively, while Kwinana MLA Roger Cook was on hand last week to deliver $20,000 of Local Projects, Local Jobs funding.
Principal Peter Elsegood said the school had been painted blue since the 1990s and the new neutral colours — beige and hornbristle red — gave it a more updated look to blend in with the school's admin building and newer buildings that have been built in the last 10 years.

“It’s added to the overall appearance and ambience of the school.”
North Parmelia Primary School council chairperson and P and C secretary Emma Heedes said although it was only materialistic it had made a “huge” difference.
“The kids love it and are proud to call the school theirs,” she said.
