A new library, 11 new classrooms and a covered outdoor learning area have now been completed as part of a $10 million upgrade at Point Clare Public School.
The new facilities have been delivered for Term 1 this year, and also include a new administration area and staff room.
Refurbishment of an outdoor play area, an additional classroom and a special programs room for visual arts are anticipated to be completed as part of the upgrade in March.
The works provide an extra 200 permanent student places.
Education Minister, Mr Rob Stokes, and Parliamentary Secretary for Planning and the Central Coast, Mr Scot MacDonald, visited the school to inspect the new facilities on February 9
Mr Stokes said the works were an important addition to the school.
“This upgrade will provide high-quality facilities for students to work and play in, and the resources staff needed to foster a love of learning,” Mr Stokes said.
“It’s vital that schools are equipped to accommodate growing student numbers, and that students and teachers have the facilities they need to engage with each other and the world around them.”
Mr MacDonald welcomed the new upgrade.
“This is an example of how the NSW Government is delivering for the Central Coast and I’m delighted to see that these facilities are now completed,” Mr MacDonald said.
Parents of the school have complained that only two of the new rooms have been air conditioned as part of their construction
