Thousands of students across NSW are settling into new classrooms and learning facilities for the first time today as more school upgrades have been completed for the start of Term 4.
Six schools are the latest to benefit from the NSW Government’s multi-billion school building program, including Monaro High School.
Nationals Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell said it was great to see the schools benefiting from the NSW Government’s historic investment in school infrastructure.
“We have seen the delivery of 23 new and upgraded schools since the start of this year, with more than $1 billion invested in these project. More than any other government in Australia,” Ms Mitchell said.
“We have delivered six upgraded schools for Term 4, despite the challenges of weather and COVID, and I am committed to making sure every student no matter where they live in NSW has access to a high-quality school.”
The NSW Nationals in the state government are investing $8.6 billion in school infrastructure over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 160 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW.
This builds on the more than $9.1 billion invested in projects delivered since 2017, a program of $17.7 billion in public education infrastructure
