Local Schools Set to Benefit From Improved School Facilities

Students across the Oatley electorate are set to benefit from improvements to their school facilities thanks to a $148 million investment across NSW.

Member for Oatley, Mark Coure was pleased to see that a number of fantastic local schools were provided with funding to upgrade their school facilities.

  • Oatley West Public School –upgrades to their electrical system
  • Blakehurst High School – upgrades to their food technology kitchen
  • Beverly Hills Girls High School – repairs to external concrete decking and two stairways
  • Narwee Public School – vision works
  • GRC Penshurst – upgraded access paths, ramps, bathrooms, and covered walkways

“Schools are often at the heart of many of our local communities, making it so important that we invest in the infrastructure upgrades to provide students and teachers with quality learning spaces.” Mr Coure said.

“This funding will help to make sure the students right across our local area have continued access to the highest quality school facilities in our state.”

Local business will also be encouraged to bid for works through the Local Trade Scheme so that they can also benefit from this funding. This will help ensure the investment also supports our local tradies and construction workers.

The NSW Government is investing $8.6 billion in school infrastructure over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 160 new and upgraded schools, like the re-developed Penshurst Public School right across the state.
