New schools part of the Covid-19 recovery plan

The NSW Government is continuing its record commitment to school infrastructure with three new and three upgraded schools across the state benefitting from more than $300 million as part of the NSW Government’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Treasurer Dominic Perrottet and Education Minister Sarah Mitchell today announced the site selected for the new primary school at Edmondson Park.

“We’re committed to delivering high-quality school infrastructure across the state, which is why we are building a new primary school in Edmondson Park and will also build new primary schools at Googong and Murrumbateman,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“We will also deliver major multimillion dollar upgrades to Carlingford West Public School, Picnic Point High School and North Sydney Public School.”

Mr Perrottet said the school infrastructure projects would benefit those beyond the school gates by keeping people in work at a critical time.

“This stimulus package will not only deliver quality schools to communities across NSW, it will support economic growth through job creation, which is vital for our state’s recovery from this pandemic,” Mr Perrottet said.

“It is estimated these projects will support up to 1,500 jobs across metropolitan and regional areas of New South Wales.”
