Facilities upgrade for The Entrance Public School

The Entrance Public School will get an upgrade of its facilities as part of the NSW Government’s $120M Regional Renewal Program.

Parliamentary Secretary for Central Coast, Adam Crouch, said The Entrance school would receive new and improved facilities in Round 3 of the renewal program.

“Projects like new sport courts, library facilities, bathroom upgrades and improved classrooms are being funded through this program,” he said.

“Some projects have already been completed, such as upgraded toilets at Bateau Bay Public School.”

Crouch said 59 projects across the region were being funded by Rounds 1, 2 and 3 of the Renewal Program.

Minister for Education, Sarah Mitchell, said the program was driven by what school communities wanted and included work such as upgrades to school playgrounds, sport courts and libraries.

“All of the projects were put forward by the schools, so they are investments that we know the school community wants,” she said.

The Regional Renewal Program is supporting more than 2,600 jobs across regional and metro NSW, and wherever possible, schools will use local contractors and supplier ensuring the positive impacts of this stimulus are felt as far and wide as possible.

The NSW Government is investing $7.9B over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 215 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW.
