Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Mr Scot MacDonald, visited St Brendan’s Catholic Primary School in Lake Munmorah on Thursday, August 24, to inspect plans for new classrooms.

The project will involve the demolition of six temporary classrooms and the creation of eight new learning areas in a two storey building with a more contemporary design. St Brendan’s is receiving $1,398,383, to support the $1,997,689 project, under the Building Grants Assistance Scheme (BGAS), with further funds provided by the school community. Joined by Assistant Principal, Ms Kellie Prendergast, and school leaders, Mr MacDonald said it was great to see that the project will commence shortly. “These new classrooms will provide a modern learning experience for the pupils of St Brendan’s and I am glad that the NSW State Government is able to support the school in their construction,” Mr MacDonald said. “This investment will allow St Brendan’s to continue to deliver high quality teaching outcomes in a safe and enjoyable environment,” he said.
