The design for the new primary school earmarked for the Wellard area has been revealed with plans for construction to begin later this year and be finished at the start of 2023.

Wellard Village Primary School (planning name) will have the capacity of 650 students and, once finished, will help ease student numbers at nearby Leda Primary School and Wellard Primary School.

Baldivis MLA Reece Whitby announced the building tenders were now advertised for the school, which will be located on Lambeth Circle and Brentford Parade, while releasing the first design images of how the new school will look.

The new facility will include a library, separate Kindergarten and Pre-Primary block and two double-storey and one single-storey general learning blocks, including art, science and inclusive education.

The school will be designed to retain as much native vegetation as possible including mature gum trees to provide shade.

Mr Whitby said he was very excited to see the first designs. “I know local families are keen to have a primary school located in the Wellard village,” he said.

“The design images reveal a high-quality school that will provide fantastic facilities for generations of Wellard children. This school will provide local students with access to a world-class education.

“The school will also help build and improve our sense of community and become a focal point of community and social activity.”

Mr Whitby said a new primary school would allow local families to cut down on travel time.
