Construction works at the site commenced in November 2022 and are expected to take four to five months to complete. As part of this temporary development, P Block will be enclosed to facilitate the construction of the temporary administration building.

However, these temporary classrooms and the enclosure will be demolished along with the administration building, the gym and the C block classrooms and office once plans for the permanent development get finalised.

The permanent development will deliver a new administration block, 10 new learning areas, a new two-storey resource centre, a gym, and associated car parking areas to be situated at the front of the school on Georgina Street.

As part of the expansion, WPSS will also see its number of staff grow to 107 from the current 69.

Pre-consultation on the proposed permanent development took place from 9 to 20 May 2022 whilst the second round of consultation was undertaken by The Department of State Development, Local Government, Infrastructure and Planning, from 16 November to 16 December 2022.
