Mandurah MP David Templeman said as WA continued to fight the spread of COVID-19, the state government was focused on improving our local schools and creating jobs for local tradespeople.

"Being active maintains good health in our kids and providing shady outdoor areas and quality play equipment is important," Mr Templeman said.

"We understand that for kids to get the most out of their education, they need modern facilities within which to learn, play and develop."
