08 Sep 2020 education

After more than two years of construction work, the multi-million-dollar upgrades at Wamberal Public School and Terrigal Public School are officially open.

Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government is working hard to deliver new and upgraded schools to support local communities and inspire students to become successful learners.


“It is really exciting to see students in their new environment. These new facilities look amazing and will be a great boost to student learning, confidence and creativity,” Ms Mitchell said.


“This Government has delivered 42 new and upgraded schools in 2020 as part of our $6.7 billion school infrastructure program, with more to come.”


Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the major upgrades included 15 new classrooms at Wamberal and 10 new classrooms at Terrigal.


“Today marks the completion of these multi-million-dollar upgrades which will future-proof our local school facilities for years to come,” Mr Crouch said.


“The 25 new classrooms were ready to go for students and teachers on day one of the 2020 school year, and over the last few months, further upgrade work has been underway at each school site.


“We will continue our commitment to support high-quality teaching and learning across the Coast with the brand new Porters Creek Public School and the upgrade of Brooke Avenue Public School.”


The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
