Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman visited Yass High School today to mark the official opening of the school’s new multipurpose hall.

Mrs Tuckerman said she was excited to see these great new facilities that will benefit the local community for generations to come.

“School halls are the natural gathering point for students and staff, and they can also be a vital part of a thriving local community.

“I am delighted to be here today to see the project complete and officially open the multipurpose hall for Yass High School,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said this government is delivering for the Yass community.

“We are making the largest investment in public school infrastructure by any State Government in Australian history. This includes building new schools, but also upgrading existing facilities to enhance the educational environment for students across the state.

“We want our children to have the best education possible and providing high-quality school facilities is a key part of that,” Ms Mitchell said.

The hall includes a full-size basketball court, storage and amenities. 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.
