New facilities announced for Hurstville Grove Infants School

Local families will benefit from the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s record investment in education, with a new multi-purpose learning space for Hurstville Grove Infants School announced today.

Member for Oatley Mark Coure and Education Minister Rob Stokes explained that the school will receive a new learning space with the flexibility to be used as either an additional classroom, special needs room or a before and after school care facility.

Mr Coure said he was thrilled to be able to deliver this educational resource for the wonderful students, staff and local community.

“We are delivering this new educational space to ensure that we have the top-quality school facilities our students need now and into the future,” Mr Coure said. Mr Stokes said the project is another example of the NSW Government delivering the school resources local students and their families deserve.

“Providing high-quality school buildings is an important way to provide our students with the best educational opportunities,” Mr Stokes said.

The project at Hurstville Grove Infants School is in addition to the NSW Government’s record $6.5 billion school building program to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools, including the redevelopment of Penshurst Public School and a major upgrade to Penshurst West Public School. Mr Stokes said the Liberal & National Government’s record investment in schools was in stark contrast to Labor’s.

“The last time Labor was in power, they shut down 90 schools, including Narwee High School, resulting in a loss of more than 500 classrooms and 2000 student places across NSW.”

In addition to the record-breaking school building program, the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has committed an unprecedented investment to eliminate the school maintenance backlog so that every public school in the State provides the world-class facilities that our students and teachers deserve.
