MAJOR CONSTRUCTION BEGINS AT RIVERSTONE HIGH SCHOOL
Written on the 8 February 2019 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly announced today that construction work for the $21 million Riverstone High School upgrade project is well underway.
The major upgrade, expected to be completed mid next year, will greatly benefit the Riverstone community by delivering 12 new permanent classrooms and refurbished student amenities and administration facilities.
"We want our children to have the best education possible, and providing high-quality school facilities is a key part of that," Mr Conolly said.
"I'm delighted the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is delivering on this important project."
Education Minister Rob Stokes said the NSW Government was strengthening the State's world-class education system so students are ready for the jobs of the future.
"This project at Riverstone High School will deliver the high quality school resources our students and teachers deserve," Mr Stokes said.
The NSW Government is investing $6 billion over the next four years to deliver more than 170 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. In addition, a record $847 million is being spent on school maintenance over four 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.
