NICOLA KALMARBroome Advertiser

Broome Senior High School’s arts, drama and music students will soon have a multipurpose arts facility, thanks to a boost from the State Government.

Five schools in the North West, including Broome Senior High, received funding for major upgrades and new facilities from the Royalties for Regions $100.5 million Regional Schools program.

The high school received $10 million for a new state-of-the-art centre for students in performing arts, music and media.

Principal Saeed Amin said the announcement was deserved recognition for the school and the continuous progress being made, adding the new facility would benefit students.

“It will help enhance, retain and attract more students,” he said.

Mr Amin said the proposal for a facility was in the pipeline for a few years, and the staff were delighted with the news.

“We have a very strong arts department in dance and physical education,” he said.

Music teacher Graeme Hortin said he believed the new facility would enable the school to deliver top student outcomes across different areas, including music and visual arts.

“It will benefit all students in promoting academic excellence and to be the best.”
