Education & Schools

As a former teacher of 27 years education is one of my biggest passions and I still regularly go into my local schools to teach students about Civics and Citizenship. I will always be champion for my schools and the wonderful work they do for your young people. Below are just a few of the things that the McGowan Government has delivered in the local Wanneroo electorate:

  • Converted classrooms into science labs at Tapping Primary School, East Wanneroo Primary School, Carramar Primary School, and Wanneroo Primary School and provided each school with $25,000 to purchase laboratory equipment.
  • Construction of a $5million upgrade at Wanneroo Secondary College including a new sports hall and improvements to the tennis courts.
  • Provided $400,000 to Tapping Primary School an upgrade to their undercover area.
  • Provided $25,000 to Carramar Primary School to assist with the purchase of playground equipment and shade sails.
  • $70,000 to Wanneroo Secondary College to purchase a minibus.
  • Invested $3.7 million to revitalise Joondalup and Clarkson North Metro TAFE campuses to enhance training facilities in the areas of health and social assistance, automation, cybersecurity, and building and construction
  • Halved TAFE courses across WA to prepare students for jobs in high demand industries like NDIS, Defense Manufacturing and Tourism and Hospitality - including a number of courses at the Joondalup and Clarkson TAFE campuses.
  • A $200 million State-wide major maintenance blitz that addressed high priority maintenance works and created thousands of jobs for local workers.
  • Funded additional teacher time which allows for Level 3 classroom teachers can coordinate mental health programs for students including at Tapping and Wanneroo primary schools & Wanneroo Secondary College.
