CONSTRUCTION TENDERED FOR NEW MARSDEN PARK PUBLIC SCHOOL
Written on the 13 November 2019 by Kevin Conolly
The Marsden Park community is one step closer to benefitting from a new school with a call made for construction tenders.
The tender milestone represents the latest step in the project which will benefit the community by providing quality modern educational facilities.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly said he was pleased the project has reached the important milestone of calling for construction tenders.
"This is an exciting project for the rapidly growing North-West. It will comprise 40 new classrooms accommodating up to 1000 students," Mr Conolly said.
The new precinct will also include core facilities including staff / student amenities administration facilities, a hall, a library and a covered outdoor learning area (COLA).
Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said she was delighted that plans for the precinct were progressing at Marsden Park.
"I'm very pleased the NSW Government is delivering these much-needed resources for the education of our children." Ms Mitchell said.
The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over the next four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. In addition, a record $1.3 billion is being spent on school maintenance over five years, along with a record $500 million for the sustainable Cooler Classrooms program to provide air conditioning to schools.
This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
