NSW completes billion dollars worth of school infrastructure upgrades

More than $1 billion of works has been completed on school infrastructure across New South Wales this year, with 42 projects completed.

Infrastructure has been upgraded across 42 new and existing schools in the state, as part of the NSW Government’s investment into school infrastructure.

The State Government will invest $6.7 billion over the next four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools around the state.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian visited Cecil Hills Public School to open a $16 million upgrade eight months ahead of schedule. She said it was one of the latest to benefit from the State Government’s $6.7 billion investment into school infrastructure over four years.

“As we’ve shown this year, it’s not just about investing historic amounts into building new schools,” Berejiklian said.

“We’re getting on with the job of turning those dollars into new and upgraded schools for communities right across the State. And it’s very pleasing to see students and teachers moving into their new classrooms months ahead of schedule.”

NSW Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government recognised the importance of investing in children’s education, as well as ensuring students and teachers have great places in which to learn and teach.

“This year we have completed 42 school infrastructure projects, representing a $1 billion investment in future generations, delivering 679 new classrooms and other world-class facilities,” Mitchell said.

“We will continue to work hard to deliver the very best for our schools, with more than $1.1 billion of infrastructure investment scheduled for next year.”
