Students and staff at Jamison High School are enjoying the start of term in brand new hall facilities, officially opened by Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres today.
Stuart Ayres said he was very pleased that the hall was now complete and that he enjoyed seeing students making the most of the new facilities.
“This new multipurpose hall can be used for school assemblies, as well as facilitating indoor sports use for both the school and broader school community. It includes an indoor sports court, equipment storage rooms, new toilets and back of house facilities,” Stuart Ayres said.
“It brings an exciting addition to the school and will benefit local students and the school community for many, many years.
“I opened the new hall at Kingswood High School a few weeks ago and look forward to opening a new hall at Nepean Creative and Performing Arts School as well as new learning facilities at Cranebrook High School before the end of the year.
“This government continues to deliver for the people of Penrith with strong investments in education, health, transport and infrastructure projects to support our community.”
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said that public schools had never been better funded than now.
“Our $15 billion infrastructure pipeline includes building new schools, but also upgrading existing facilities to enhance the educational environment for students across the state,” Ms Mitchell said.
“Western Sydney alone is seeing an additional $2 billion investment in new works over the next four years, building on our historic investment in new and upgraded schools.”
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.
