RIVERBANK PUBLIC SCHOOL UPGRADE GOES OUT TO TENDER
Written on the 20 April 2018 by Kevin Conolly
Students and teachers at Riverbank Public School will soon benefit from a major upgrade that will provide new classrooms and improved facilities, funded by the NSW Government.
Works will now go out to tender for the project, which will include 14 new classrooms, a covered outdoor learning area (COLA), shade structures and expansion of administration and staff facilities.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly welcomed the project reaching this stage.
"We want our children to have the best education possible, and this project will help deliver the high quality education our children deserve," Mr Conolly said.
"I'm pleased the NSW Government is delivering this important project."
Education Minister Rob Stokes said the NSW Government was working hard to deliver the school facilities students and local communities need.
"This project will give students the resources they need to succeed in the 21st century," Rob Stokes said.
The NSW Government is spending $4.2 billion over four years building 120 new or upgraded schools and $747 million on school maintenance. This is the biggest investment in public school infrastructure in the history of NSW.
Other projects in the Riverstone include upgrades at Quakers Hill East Primary School; Schofields Public school; and Riverstone High School, as well as two new primary schools to be built in the Alex Avenue Precinct and Marsden Park.
