Construction on the upgrade at Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School is progressing well with roofing complete and the internal fit-out underway.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell and Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres today visited the school to see the construction first hand.
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 he was pleased to be able to visit Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School and see the advances being made on the project.
“It’s an exciting project for our local area and I’m so glad to be able to visit. The upgrade at Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School will ensure that local students will benefit from the latest in school design,” Stuart Ayres said.
“The NSW Government is committed to delivering for Western Sydney and this is a prime example of one of the many school projects that our students will benefit from.”
Ms Mitchell said she was thrilled to see so much progress on the upgrade, which will benefit the whole school community.
“I’m delighted to see the project taking shape, and I share the school community’s excitement about this new multi-purpose hall.”
“The NSW Government continues to deliver for students and families in this area. Western Sydney alone is seeing an additional $2 billion investment in new works over four years, building on our historic investment in new and upgraded schools.”
The project, which is expected to be complete in 2022, is on track with roofing and wall and ceiling linings now complete. Next steps include installation of windows and louvres, finishing wall cladding, painting and tiling.
