School Building Program continues to deliver in South West Sydney

The NSW Government’s historic school building program is continuing to deliver for South West Sydney with Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell and Member for Holsworthy Melanie Gibbons, visiting the site of the new primary school in Edmondson Park as construction gets underway.

The new primary school will deliver 44 teaching and learning spaces, four support classrooms and two preschool rooms in early 2023, accommodating up to 1,000 students and adding 40 preschool places for community use.

Mitchell said she was thrilled to see the project progressing to construction stage as she turned the first sod.

“The NSW Government is delivering this brand new primary school in Edmondson Park to support for young families living in the area,” Mitchell said.

“Since 2019, 13 new and upgraded schools have been delivered across South West Sydney, an investment of more than $350 million. This new primary school at Edmondson Park builds on the NSW Government’s commitment to deliver for families across the South West Sydney region.”

“The NSW Government is delivering for South West Sydney, with record investments in South West Sydney in areas such as school infrastructure,” said Melanie Gibbons, State Member for Holsworthy.

The new primary school will be led by Principal Heather Alè, who has been an educator with the NSW Department of Education for 20 years and has led improvement, innovation and change in diverse school contexts as Deputy Principal and Principal.

“As we prepare to open the new school in 2023, the Edmondson Park community was invited to vote on their preferred name for the new school and register their interest on how to make an enrolment application,” Ms Alè said
