The site is located on 2 Fairley Street, a 1.5-hectare site in the centre of Murrumbateman with dual road frontage.
Minister Mitchell said securing the land was a significant and exciting step in the planning process for the new primary school.
“This school will be a valuable asset for local families and benefit the Murrumbateman community for generations.
“I’m proud that the NSW Government is continuing our record investment in school infrastructure, particularly in regional and rural NSW,” Ms Mitchell said.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman, said the long-awaited announcement is welcome news to the Murrumbateman community.
“Planning for new schools can take time because it’s extremely important due diligence is undertaken at each step.
