Students and teachers at Hunter Sports High School will benefit from new state-of-the-art facilities funded by the NSW Liberal National Government when they return to school tomorrow.

The school’s new T-block will open to students tomorrow for the start of Term 3. It is the largest of three new buildings being delivered as part of the school’s redevelopment.

The new T-block includes 39 classrooms, including 26 general classrooms and 13 specialist classrooms (for senior classes, food technology, wood and metal work, and science), reception and administration space, staff offices, student and staff amenities and store rooms.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald MLC welcomed the project reaching this important milestone.

“I’m pleased the NSW Liberal National Government is delivering this important project, in part due to a $5.3 million contribution from the Hunter Infrastructure and Investment Fund,” Mr MacDonald said.

“This will ensure students and families in the Charlestown community have the very best when it comes to school facilities.”

Education Minister Rob Stokes said the NSW Government was working hard to deliver the school facilities students and local communities need.

“This project will help provide the high-quality education our children need to succeed in the 21st century,” Rob Stokes said.

The NSW Government is spending $6 billion over four years building 170 new or upgraded schools and $747 million on school maintenance. This is the biggest investment in public school infrastructure in the history of NSW.
