The new primary school in Murrumbateman has taken a significant step forward, with Hansen Yuncken awarded the Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) contract for the designs of the new school.
Member for Goulburn, Wendy Tuckerman was pleased the project is gaining momentum with Early Contractor Involvement.
“This is one step closer to construction commencing,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government is investing in regional education, providing modern learning facilities and building on the State’s world-class education system.
“I’m excited that we’ve reached another milestone on this project and students in Murrumbateman will soon have access to this high-quality school,” Ms Mitchell said.
Once completed, the new school will include flexible learning spaces, a library, hall, canteen, special education learning unit, covered outdoor learning area and administration and staff facilities. These new facilities will cater for up to 370 students.
The NSW Government is investing $7.9 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 215 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
