Port Dalymple – An Area to Grow and Learn

Project Type

School Re-Development and Training Kitchen Installation

About The Project

Port Dalrymple School was opened in 1999 after the merge of George Town Primary School and Georgetown High School. With approximately 550 students and additional Path Way students, the functionality of the high school is paramount to the communities children’s continued learning whilst ensuring they are able to stay close to their families and not have to commute daily to the city.

The redevelopment of the school and installation of the training kitchen provided the students with state of the art tools to successfully complete their studies whilst providing a service to the community and gaining employable skills and experience for future success in their careers.

Mr P Challis – Principal Port Dalrymple School

‘As I moved about the school this morning I had the opportunity to observe your crew at work outside, bringing out concrete blocks and moving gravel. I also observed them at work through the windows of the classrooms.

 They also have supported us with excellent cooperation and outstanding courtesy, regardless of who has interacted with them, whether senior staff, teachers, office staff and ancillary staff. They are a credit to your company, yourself and your foremen’

Robyn Allan – School Business Manager, Port Dalrymple School
