Students at Terrigal and Wamberal Public Schools have good reason to celebrate as the 2020 school year begins, with a total of 25 new classrooms ready to occupy.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said major infrastructure upgrades had resulted in 10 new classrooms at Terrigal and 15 new classrooms at Wamberal.
“These 25 new classrooms will future-proof our local education facilities for years to come,” Crouch said.
“There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how good these new facilities look.
“It is fantastic to have these classrooms ready to go for students and teachers on day one of the 2020 school year.
“These major upgrades have been years in the making.”
The $10M upgrade at Terrigal Public School included an upgrade of core facilities including administration, staff and student amenities, as well as the 10 new classrooms.
At Wamberal, the administration and staff building was upgraded, as were the hall, car parks, two existing classrooms and special education classrooms.
Cost of these upgrades and the 15 new classrooms was $20M.
Education Minister, Sarah Mitchell, said the State Government was working hard to deliver the school facilities that students and local communities deserve.
“We are making the largest investment in public school infrastructure by any State Government,” Mitchell said.
