GROUND’S been broken on the new science and tech facilities at Mount Lawley Senior High School.
To watch over the first shovel loads, the school’s therapy dog Khyzer joined premier Mark McGowan, education minister Sue Ellery, Mount Lawley MP Simon Millman and WW II veteran Arthur Leggett OAM (he’s had a long association with the school, giving their Anzac addresses for years and the library’s named after him).
The new building houses two science labs, an engineering workshop and a mechatronics studio with two classrooms, where pupils can design, build and program robots.
The upgrades were part of an election pledge, and the $4 million put aside in the 2017 budget.
The classrooms are scheduled to be open for the 2021 school year.
