After more than two years of construction work, the multi-million-dollar upgrades at Wamberal Public School and Terrigal Public School are officially open.

Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning, Sarah Mitchell, was on the Coast on September 7 to announce the provision of 15 new classrooms at Wamberal and 10 at Terrigal.

“It is really exciting to see students in their new environment,” Mitchell said.

“These new facilities look amazing and will be a great boost to student learning, confidence and creativity.

“This Government has delivered 42 new and upgraded schools in 2020 as part of our $6.7B school infrastructure program, with more to come.”

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, accompanied Mitchell to both schools.

“These multi-million-dollar upgrades will future-proof our local school facilities for years to come,” Crouch said.

“The 25 new classrooms were ready to go for students and teachers on day one of the 2020 school year, and over the last few months, further upgrade work has been underway at each school site.

“We will continue our commitment to support high-quality teaching and learning across the Coast with the new Porters Creek Public School and the upgrade of Brooke Avenue Public School.”

The Terrigal and Wamberal upgrades cost $31M in total.
