Written on the 22 November 2019 by Kevin Conolly
Students at Quakers Hill East Public School are now enjoying some of the newest classrooms and facilities in NSW after their school upgrade was officially completed today.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell and Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly today visited Quakers Hill East Public School to mark the official opening of the upgraded facilities.
The $12 million project has delivered 12 new fully air conditioned flexible learning spaces, improvements to the existing classrooms and an extension to the administration building.
Mr Conolly celebrated the opening of the upgraded Quakers Hill East Public School.
"This major upgrade has delivered brand new fully air conditioned classrooms, a new performance studio and a new digital hub. We want school students in NSW to have the very best education, and providing high-quality school facilities like these is a key part of that," Mr Conolly said.
"I'm thrilled to see the new facilities here at Quakers Hill East Public School - they will benefit the local community for generations to come."
Ms Mitchell said she was proud the NSW Government had delivered such an important project for the Quakers Hill community.
"It's an exciting day for the students and teachers at Quakers Hill East Public School, and I'm delighted to be here to officially open the wonderful new facilities," Ms Mitchell said.
The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over the next 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.
