SCHOOL MAINTENANCE BLITZ FOR THE CENTRAL COAST
15th Jan 2018

More than $2 million will be spent on school maintenance projects which will run over the summer holiday period in Gosford, Wyong and The Entrance.

Nine schools are set to benefit from roof works, including repair and maintenance;

  • Tuggerawong Public School: $180,821
  • Chittaway Bay Public School: $250,137
  • Blue Haven Public School: $101,966
  • Valley View Public School: $285,431
  • The Entrance Public School: $274,564
  • Ourimbah Public School: $146,098
  • Woy Woy Public School: $285,431
  • Umina Public School: $201,471
  • Henry Kendall High School: $319,781

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC welcomed the investment in local schools.

“Every child deserves to have access to great facilities, wonderful teachers and get an excellent education – and that is what we are delivering for school students on the Central Coast,” Mr MacDonald said.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said this program is another example of how this Government is committed to public education and delivering local infrastructure to support communities right across NSW.

“We are making good use of the summer break to carry out important projects while students are off enjoying their holidays.” Mr Stokes said

The summer holiday blitz is part of the NSW Government’s record $747 million school maintenance investment over the next four years announced as part of the 2017 Budget, allowing every school across New South Wales to have their maintenance project lists slashed by December 2018.

This investment is urgent and necessary after the previous Labor Government disgracefully left our public schools with a $1 billion school maintenance backlog.
