Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP and Minister for Education, Rob Stokes today have announced that Cecil Hills Public School will be expanded and upgraded with funding from this year’s NSW Government Budget.
The school will be expanded with new teaching spaces and facilities to meet the needs of the growing student population in the local area.
This project is part of the NSW Government’s strong commitment to education across the state, which will see a record $4.2 billion invested into new and existing school projects over the next four years, including $2.2 billion worth of new projects commencing in the next two years.
Tanya Davies said the expansion was an important project to meet the needs of local students.
“Our community needs schools and learning resources that will give the next generation the best start possible,” Tanya Davies said.
“I’m pleased the NSW Government is delivering for my local community.”
Education Minister Rob Stokes said NSW public schools are expected to enrol an additional 164,000 students by 2031, and the school expansion will provide state-of-the-art facilities for the growing student population.
“This expansion will ensure students and staff have the resources they need to succeed in the 21st century,” Mr Stokes said.
“This project is an example of how the NSW Government is providing high-quality education facilities for students and their communities now and into the future.”
The project is in the design phase and final funding for the project will be confirmed after the tender process for works has been completed.
