Students and staff are set to benefit from improved and upgraded facilities as 14 local schools are included in the NSW Government’s $484M Minor Capital Works program.
Brooke Avenue Public School will be receiving air cooling and tapware modifications.
Gorokan High School will be receiving funds to establish an MC support class.
Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College (TLSC) The Entrance Campus will have replaced hall doors and threshold with compliant access and TLSC Tumbi Umbi Campus will receive upgraded air cooling.
Tuggerah Public School will receive a CCTV system.

Other schools to be upgraded are Brisbane Water Secondary College at Woy Woy, Chertsey Public School, Kincumber Public and High schools, Terrigal High School Wamberal Public and Wyoming Public School.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Adam Crouch, said each project funded through the annual Minor Capital Works program will ensure students have the best possible facilities to create the best possible learning environment.
“The funding in this program is being distributed across NSW’s 2,200 public schools and I am delighted that schools from one end on the Coast to the other are receiving a fair share,” Crouch said.
The $484M Minor Capital Works program will upgrade and renew school facilities and security, as well as improve accessibility for students with additional needs across 250 schools.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW, John Barilaro, said more than half of the schools to benefit are in regional and rural NSW.
“This government is investing record amounts into our schools to ensure that every child, no matter where they live, has access to excellent schools and education facilities.
“This investment will also provide a welcome boost for regional economies, by creating jobs and providing work for local tradespeople at a time when it is needed most,” Barilaro said.
