Geraldton MLA Ian Blayney said this morning that the State Government has honoured a 2008 election commitment by allocating an extra $8 million to complete Wandina Primary School by 2017.

“I appreciate the work done by the staff, board, P and C, and community to make this such a successful new school,” Mr Blayney said.

“An arts building and library will be among a number of improvements at Wandina.

The facilities will be state-of-the-art and provide everything students need for a 21st century education."

Mr Blayney said the school opened at the beginning of 2014 and now has more than 280 students from Kindergarten to Year 4d.

“With Geraldton’s rapid expansion in the southern suburbs the school will continue to grow and I know the people of Geraldton will welcome this news today,"Mr Blayney said.

"Confidence in our public schools has never been higher, and for the past five years we've seen an enrolment drift back to public schools."
