|The diagram shows how the West Park Secondary School has transformed over the period of 60 years since the time of its establishment in 1950.
It is visible that the school underwent some of the substantial changes throughout this period with the building’s expansion and the additions of car parking and sports field.
As the diagram showcases, in 1950, the school had just one building, which was next to a few houses. Just behind the building, there was a playground. Also, towards the south-west side, there was farmland. After 30 years, the houses got demolished to construct car parking. On top of that, the building got expanded in two different parts – one is known as a science block and the other is used as the primary building. Another change that took place was the farmland conversion into a sports field.
Looking at the map of 2010, the only significant change that occurred was the car park extension that took almost half of the entire school’s area. This resulted in the shrunken size of the playground and sports field to make way for an enlarged car park.
