Students and teachers at Terrigal and Wamberal Public Schools will benefit from major upgrades that will provide new and improved facilities funded by the NSW Government.
Works will soon begin on the projects, which involve the construction of 25 new classrooms across the two schools. Terrigal Public School will benefit from 10 new classrooms and amenities upgrades, while Wamberal Public School’s upgrade includes 15 new classrooms and upgrades to core facilities. Member for Terrigal, Mr Adam Crouch, visited Terrigal Public School with Education Minister, Mr Rob Stokes, for a sod-turning ceremony, and welcomed the projects reaching this important milestone. “I’m excited that the NSW Government is delivering for Terrigal and Wamberal Public Schools,” Mr Crouch said.
“These upgrades will ensure students and families in our local community have the very best when it comes to school facilities. “The construction of these 25 new teaching spaces means that all demountable will be replaced with permanent classrooms. “This also means that our local educational facilities will be future-proofed for projected growth in student numbers in the years to come,” Mr Crouch said. Mr Stokes said the NSW Government was working hard to deliver the school resources that students and local communities need. “The NSW Government is spending $4.2b over four years building 120 new or upgraded schools and $747m on school maintenance. “This is the biggest investment in public school infrastructure in the history of NSW,” Mr Stokes concluded.
