YANCHEP’s new high school, which is under construction in Ravensbourne St, might have its new school uniform available when school resumes for the final term of 2017.

In a letter to Yanchep Beach Primary School parents Yanchep Secondary College (planning name) principal James Kent said he was working with the local P&Cs and school councils to develop the school uniform for the new college, which was expected to be finished this year.

Dr Kent said it was proposed Year 11 and 12 students would have a different uniform from Year 7-10 students.

He said the technology wing of the new college would incorporate multiple computing laboratories, wood, metal work and cooking rooms.

“In the main teaching block there are specialist laboratories for chemistry, physics and biology, a large library and classrooms set up with the latest teaching technologies.

“In addition to our focus on numeracy, literacy, science and the humanities, there will be a focus on technology in the arts, participation in team sports and extra-curricular activities.

“Through the development of the business plan, we will develop our curriculum focus and how we will incorporate the uniqueness of Yanchep into our school.

“Students currently in year 6 and enrolled at Yanchep District High School, Yanchep Beach Primary School and Two Rocks Primary School will be eligible to enrol at Yanchep Secondary College (proposed name).

To enrol students, parents-guardians will need to complete an application to enrol form.

“Until we are able to take possession of the site, we are operating from a business unit located at Unit 1/99 Lindsay Beach Boulevard, Yanchep (opposite Yanchep Beach Primary School).
