Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today announce that capital works will soon begin at Lapstone Public School with AJ Bristow & Sons Pty Ltd awarded the construction tender.
The works will benefit the Blue Mountains community by delivering an upgraded library/classroom and administration building at the school.
Stuart Ayres said he was pleased the project has reached this important milestone of construction contract award.
“This is an exciting addition to schools in the area and will deliver modern resources to local students, now and into the future.” Stuart Ayres said.
Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said she was pleased the project is progressing.
“The Department of Education is working hard to deliver the school facilities that students and local communities deserve,” Ms Mitchell said.
“This includes building new schools, but also upgrading existing facilities to enhance the educational environment for students across the state.”
The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
