Principal Mr Phil Tucker Westfields Sports High principal Phil Tucker with plans to upgrade facilities at the school
Sports high kicks $6m goal
WESTFIELDS Sports High School will soon contain state-of-the-art facilities, due to an upgrade costing more than $6.1 million.

Tenders have been called for the stage two upgrade. They are returnable by December 3.

About to venture into a fresh era with major renovations taking place, principal Mr Phil Tucker said this week he was pleased with the news.

"It involves a major refurbishment of the school with a new two-story building," he said.
"I think it will take about 18 months to complete."

Included in the upgrade are 33 classrooms, kitchens, woodwork and metalwork workshops and computer and science laboratories.

Mr Tucker praised Fairfield State Labor MP Joe Tripodi for his "efforts and energy in making sure the project went ahead".

"Westfields Sports High School has an outstanding record of sporting and academic excellence," Mr Tripodi said.
As well as physical improvements being implemented at the school, teaching method upgrades should be a knock-on effect of the renovations.
Mr Tucker said: "We'll have a new-style staffroom and this should mean more communication between staff.
"The application of a new technology and more effective communication will be a boost to the educational benefits."
The successful tenderer will be decided on December 17.
