Point Clare Public School will receive an upgrade of 10 new classrooms to replace the demountables currently being used at the school.
Minister for Education Adrian Piccoli and Member for Gosford Chris Holstein announced the upgrade on Thursday, June 12. Mr Piccoli said the improvements to facilities at Point Clare would include the removal of most of the demountables at the school.
“The upgrade will be funded in the State Budget and is an important part of our commitment to public education on the Central Coast,” Mr Piccoli said. “This will put the school in an excellent position to maintain its outstanding reputation in the community for many years to come.” Mr Holstein said Point Clare Public School has been serving families on the western side of Brisbane Water since 1955.
“The proposed upgrade will enhance its ability to provide an outstanding learning environment to this growing community,” he said. “The school provides a wide range of educational, sporting, performing arts and social opportunities for students, and the improved facilities will augment its capacity in all these areas.
“Mr Holstein said the new buildings would incorporate the latest energy effi ciency, ecological sustainability and IT practices. The upgrade will include: the removal of demountables; new classrooms; special programs rooms; student facilities; refurbishing the library and the administration area; and outdoor amenities.
Construction work is expected to commence in May 2015, with an anticipated completion date in January 2016.
