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.

“This is a once in a generation thing,” he said.

“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.
