The Glenwood High School will soon see works starting, with plans lodged for the State Significant Development (SSD) application with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) for the major upgrade.
The redeveloped school will deliver a new three storey building which will include 47 learning spaces, the refurbishment of the ground floors of Buildings A and D, and the refurbishment of Buildings E and J, as well as landscaping throughout the school.
Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly said the upgraded school will be a wonderful addition to the area that will deliver modern resources for the growing student population.
“Our schools are the centre of our communities and we want our children to have the best education possible. Providing high-quality school facilities is a key part of that,” Mr Conolly said.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the upgraded high school will deliver modern resources to local students now and into the future.
“I’m proud that the NSW Government is delivering this major upgrade at Glenwood High School. It will benefit the school and the local community for years to come,” Ms Mitchell said.
“I’m very pleased the NSW Government is delivering these much-needed resources for the education of our children.”
The SSD application is on public exhibition from 19 November 2021 to 16 December 2021 for formal feedback at https://www.planningportal.nsw.gov.au/major-projects/project/42281.

The NSW Government is investing $7.9 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 215 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
