FIRST SOD TURNED ON SCHOFIELDS PUBLIC SCHOOL REDEVELOPMENT
Written on the 22 October 2018 by Kevin Conolly
Education Minister Rob Stokes and Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly visited Schofields Public School today to turn the first sod on the school's multi-million dollar upgrade.
When complete, the project will deliver the school community 27 new classrooms, including three special education classrooms, a new library, canteen, covered outdoor learning area, and upgraded staff and administration areas.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly said the school will be able to accommodate about 600 students once the upgrade is complete in mid-2020.
"This is a major step forward in the redevelopment of Schofields Public School, and I look forward to watching these works get underway," Mr Conolly said.
Mr Stokes said the NSW Government was building on the state's world-class education system so students were ready for the jobs of the future.
"We're building schools that will be able to serve our communities for generations to come and this major project at Schofields Public School is a great example of that," Mr Stokes said.
This project is part of the NSW Government's record $6 billion school building program over the next four years, which will deliver more than 170 new and upgraded schools to support communities throughout NSW. This is the largest investment into public school infrastructure by any state government in Australian history.
