Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today announced that early construction works have commenced on the upgrade at Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School following the recent development application approval.
The upgrade will transform the existing school by delivering a new multi-purpose hall that can be used for indoor sports, assemblies or performances and includes sports and equipment storage rooms and toilets.
Stuart Ayres said the whole school community would benefit from the upgrade.
“The upgrade at Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School will ensure that local students will benefit from the latest in school design as well as new education technologies,” Stuart Ayres said.
“I am thrilled to see the NSW Government delivering for Western Sydney.”
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government was building on the State’s world class education system and was pleased to see the upgrade progressing.
“This major upgrade at Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School will provide students with the high-quality education facilities our children need to succeed,” Ms Mitchell said.
The NSW Government is investing $7.9 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 215 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
