RIVERBANK PUBLIC SCHOOL MAJOR UPGRADE OPENS TO STUDENTS
Written on the 24 February 2020 by Kevin Conolly
The 2020 school year at Riverbank Public School has started with a major facility upgrade opening its doors to welcome the students, teachers and staff.
The project, worth almost $18 million, has delivered 15 new teaching spaces all fully air conditioned, plus an enlarged covered outdoor learning area, expansion of administration and staff areas and new canteen.
Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly welcomed the completion of the upgrade, which has been delivered to meet growing enrolment demand in the local area.
"I am delighted that this school upgrade, one of many taking place in the Riverstone community, was delivered on time and on budget and will serve the needs and expectations of the growing number of families with young children moving into our local community today and into the future," said Mr Conolly.
Minister for Education Ms Sarah Mitchell said she was proud the NSW Government had delivered such an important project for the Riverstone community.
Meanwhile, upgrades to Riverstone High School and Schofields Public School are well underway and nearing completion, and construction work for a new school at Farmland Drive (near Alex Avenue) Schofields has commenced.
The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over four years to deliver 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.
