Canteen and Kitchen Works for Penrith High School


Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today visited Penrith High School to take a look at the new canteen facilities and upgrades to school kitchen areas.

Stuart Ayres said the two projects totalling nearly $250,000 were recently completed at the school and reported that students and staff were already enjoying the new facilities.

“The NSW Government is dedicated to providing the best possible learning environments for NSW public school students and the recent upgrades to Penrith High School highlights our commitment to ensuring this happens,” Stuart Ayres said.

“It is important that school facilities are kept up to date and that we continue to provide modern and appropriate learning environments for our students.”

The upgrade to Penrith High School’s canteen was undertaken to meet current code provisions and included in the 2013/14 Minor Capital Works Program at a total cost of $125,162.

The canteen upgrade comprised:

·         New kitchen joinery

·         Stainless steel bench tops

·         Replacement servery screens and shutters

·         New flooring

·         Painting of internal surfaces

·         Plumbing and drainage works

Stuart Ayres also said the school received funding of $120,000 under Round 3 of the Public School Upgrade Program to refurbish two school kitchens, a preparation room and laundry to current standards.

The works included:

·         New kitchen joinery and cupboards

·         New kitchen island benches

·         Replacement laminate bench tops and sinks

·         Painting of internal surfaces

·         Plumbing and drainage works

“It’s a credit to the school how they managed this kitchen upgrade project themselves, and acknowledgement must go to the school leadership group, including the Principal and the P&C, for their support in the planning and delivery of the project, and for the way they have kept parents and carers updated and involved,” added Stuart Ayres.
