We have fantastic news for our future performing artists.
Last week our school leaders Claude Ishimwe and Yen Pham, as well as Principal Wayne Austin were visited by WA Premier Mark McGowan.
Accompanied by Sue Ellery (Minister for Education), Amber-Jade Sanderson (MLA Morley) and Simon Millman (MLA Mt Lawley), the visit coincides with the McGowan Government's announcement to modernise local schools as part of the WA Recovery Plan.
The Major School Upgrade package – totals $492.2 million – includes $319.2 million of new funding for upgrades and refurbishments at 63 public schools around the State, stimulating economic growth and supporting around 1,850 jobs.
As part of the package, Dianella Secondary College will be getting $5.3m to put towards the construction of a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre.
