Students at Epping Public School now have access to new modern, spacious classrooms and facilities to start the new school year thanks to a $20 million project as part of the largest public education infrastructure investment in the State’s history.
Member for Epping Dominic Perrottet visited Epping Public School to mark the official opening of the new facilities alongside Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Education Minister Sarah Mitchell.
The $20 million project has delivered 22 new air conditioned permanent classrooms and a new library to meet growing enrolment demand in the local area.
Mr Perrottet said the new facilities provided students with modern classrooms equipped with the latest technology allowing students to reach their full potential.
“The NSW Government is delivering record investment in public education infrastructure, which will benefit today’s students and generations to come,” Mr Perrottet said.
“Providing a quality education for our children is one of our top priorities and we are doing everything we can to ensure students and teachers in Epping are equipped with the resources they need.
“Epping is a great place to live, work and raise a family and we are committed to making it even better.”
Ms Mitchell said she was proud the NSW Government had delivered such an important project for the Epping community.
“It’s an exciting day for the students and teachers at Epping Public School, and I’m delighted to officially open the wonderful new facilities,” Ms Mitchell said.
“I want school students in NSW to have the very best education possible, and providing high-quality school facilities like these is a key part of that.”
In addition to the new classrooms and library which have been provided for the start of the school year, stage 2 of the project will provide upgraded administration areas and special programs rooms by April 2020.
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.
