State Treasurer Troy Buswell was a hit with Beachlands Kindergarten students as he announced that $1.8 million will be spent on a new kindergarten block.

“The Liberal-National Government has, and will continue to, invest significantly in capital works projects in schools throughout Western Australia to further enhance the wonderful academic and vocational programs they offer,” Mr Blayney said.
