RISING FROM THE ASHES: ST CLAIR HIGH SCHOOL REBUILT AND BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE

Thursday July 26, 2018

 

Whilst many students reluctantly returned to school this week, St Clair High School students cheered as the doors opened to their brand new school.

When a devastating fire destroyed 80 per cent of the school in 2014 Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies MP committed that in this term of Government St Clair High School would be rebuilt.

“At the last election I promised St Clair High School would be rebuilt and I am so proud to have delivered this brilliant result for these students and my community,” Tanya Davies said.

Tanya Davies and Acting Principal Sally Smithard spent the holidays making sure that everything was ready, helping move furniture into the new classrooms, for the beginning of Term 3.

“On the first day back one of the students said that it ‘felt like my first day at university’ with others exclaiming that ‘it was awesome’,” Tanya Davies said.

“Enjoy your state-of-the-art, air-conditional, quality learning environment St Clair High. I look forward to the official community opening to celebrate with the students, parents, teachers and St Clair community.”

The new $24.6 million Innovation Centre is part of the NSW Government’s $6 billion spend to deliver more than 170 new and upgraded schools across the state – the biggest investment in public schools in the history of NSW.

  • 16 new teaching spaces
  • A research area
  • A lecture hall
  • A learning common area
