Tools down has been called and construction at Terrigal and Wamberal Public Schools has been completed in time for day one of the 2020 school year.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said major infrastructure upgrades have resulted in 10 new classrooms at Terrigal and 15 new classrooms at Wamberal.
“These 25 new classrooms at Terrigal and Wamberal Public Schools will future-proof our local education facilities for years to come,” Mr Crouch said.
“There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how good these new facilities look.
“It is fantastic to have these classrooms ready to go for students and teachers on day one of the 2020 school year.
“These major upgrades have been years in the making and I am so proud that the NSW Liberal Government’s strong Budget position has made this possible.”
Education Minister Sarah Mitchell also welcomed the handover, saying the NSW Government was working hard to deliver the school facilities that students and local communities deserve.
“I’m excited for the community at Terrigal and Wamberal Public Schools who are now enjoying their upgraded facilities,” Ms Mitchell said.
“We are making the largest investment in public school infrastructure by any State Government. This includes building new schools but also upgrading existing facilities to enhance the educational environment for students across the State.”
The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over the next four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. In addition, a record $1.3 billion is being spent on school maintenance over five years, along with a record $500 million for the sustainable Cooler Classrooms program to provide air conditioning to schools. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
