Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly has joined the Galungara Public School Principal Tracy Anderson to celebrate the progress of Stage 2 with a “topping out” ceremony of two of the new buildings under construction.
Stage 2 will deliver 20 new learning spaces, two additional covered outdoor learning areas (COLAs), two new multipurpose games courts and landscaping works.
Mr Conolly said he was delighted to see the project progressing so well and be able to attend the Stage 2 topping out.
“Galungara Public School is part of the government’s commitment to supporting families by delivering important public infrastructure projects, especially in the Riverstone electorate which is growing at a rapid rate,” Mr Conolly said.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said she is proud the NSW Government is investing in public education.
“Our schools are the centre of our communities. We are delivering on our commitment to give local students the latest facilities and support the growing school community, both now and into the future,” Ms Mitchell said.
“Being able to deliver construction in two stages has allowed students and teachers to get into the classroom earlier but also allowed students to get to know their school and the students with them.”
The NSW Government is investing $2 billion over four years to deliver new and upgraded schools for Western Sydney. Since 2013, more than 50 new and upgraded schools have been completed in Western Sydney.
The NSW Government is investing $8.6 billion in school infrastructure over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 160 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This builds on the more than $9.1 billion invested in projects delivered since 2017, a program of $17.7 billion in public education infrastructure.
