An unfinished primary school being built in Perth’s southern suburbs has posted further construction updates as it races against the clock to have the facility finished by the start of the school year. Wellard Village Primary School shared several additions to its Facebook page on Friday, including finished artworks to be installed around the school next week, freshly laid grass, new sandpits and an extra playground. “Our school is looking amazing,” the post said. “Turf has been laid, the ECE playground has been put in, shade structures are up and we have sandpits. “It is so exciting.” The latest social media update came just days after the Department of Education ensured concerned parents the school would be up and running on February 1 despite “significant disruption” to the construction timeline. Works on the schools were thrown into chaos after builder Firm Construction went into voluntary administration in November. The company was stripped of its contracts — including the primary school — by the State Government and quickly replaced by McCorkell Constructions. Parents were notified of the changes and told the school would not be completed in time for the first day of term, but ‘transportable classrooms’ and demountables would be available as a ‘contingency’. With less than two weeks left until the start of term 1, the school still has plenty of work left to do, with photos shared earlier in the week showing parts of the facility looking less than inviting for prospective students. Several demountables could be seen surrounded by sand with materials scattered across the ground, piles of gravel around the oval and the ‘bike and scooter’ compound a fenced concrete slab. The department has not commented on whether students would be be in productive and safe learning environment when the school year begins.
