Major construction begins at Inner City College

  • Subi East

Bricks and mortar construction of Inner City College in Subiaco is now underway following the completion of forward works.

The significant milestone was marked today by a traditional Aboriginal smoking ceremony at the Kitchener Park site, led by local Whadjuk custodians.

Over the next 18 months PACT Construction will work to bring the $70.6million college to life with classrooms, science and technology laboratories, a library, an auditorium, and administration and student services facilities.

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said this was an exciting milestone for what will become first-class learning facilities.

“When the college opens its doors in 2020, it will be a vibrant hub with the community welcome to use many of the new facilities, from the playing courts and gymnasium to the auditorium and iconic Subiaco Oval.”

Inner City College is part of the exciting new Subi East renewal project that will transform the Subiaco Oval surrounds and Princess Margaret Hospital site.

Planning Minister Rita Saffioti said the college and the redevelopment of Subi East were about providing for future generations.

“The things we love about Subiaco like the oval, parks, connectivity and heritage will be a key feature to consider in our future plan for the area,” she said.

The Inner City College is expected to welcome 250 Year 7 students in 2020.
