Students and teachers at Penrith Public School will benefit from an upgrade that will provide new classrooms and improved facilities, funded by the NSW Government.
The construction contract has been awarded for the project, which will include 12 new classrooms, toilet facilities and a refurbishment of the school’s administration building.
Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres welcomed the project reaching this vital stage.
“We want our children to have the best education possible, and this project will help deliver the high quality education our children deserve,” Mr Ayres said.
“I’m pleased the NSW Government is delivering this important project.”
Education Minister Rob Stokes said the NSW Government was working hard to deliver the school facilities students and local communities need.
“This project will give students the resources they need to succeed in the 21st century,” Rob Stokes said.
The NSW Government is spending $4.2 billion over four years building 120 new or upgraded schools and $747 million on school maintenance. This is the biggest investment in public school infrastructure in the history of NSW.
