Students in the Goulburn electorate are set to benefit from improvements to their school facilities thanks to a $148 million investment across the State, earmarked in the 2022/23 NSW Budget.
Four schools will receive funding under the Minor Capital Works program to make upgrades and improvements to learning facilities. This will include:
- Tirranna Public School – Installation of a sports and storage shed
- Wollondilly Public School – Installation of electronic security gates
- Tallong Public School – Sports court
- Goulburn North Public School – Admin Upgrade
- Crookwell High School – Food Technology Upgrade
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said it is important we have quality facilities to help our students thrive at school.
“School environments play a crucial role in students’ learning experience, so it is important that we provide the quality teaching and learning spaces.
“This funding will help make sure all students have high-quality facilities and that the schools are equipped to manage increases in student numbers.
“Local businesses will also be encouraged to bid for the works through the Local Trade Scheme so that they can also benefit from this funding. This will help ensure the investment supports our local tradies, particularly in regional communities.”
The NSW Government is investing $8.6 billion in school infrastructure over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 160 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This builds on the more than $9.1 billion invested in projects delivered since 2017, a program of $17.7 billion in public education infrastructure.
