Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald MLC confirmed the 2017 NSW Budget includes plans for a new school at Warnervale.

Mr MacDonald said, “As part of the upcoming Liberal National 2017 Budget, Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Education Rob Stokes MP announced an extra $2.2 Billion for School upgrades and development. This brings to $4.2 billion committed over the next four years for capital works for public schools in NSW.”

“This is a great win for the Wyong region. The population is growing quickly and the Department of Education has identified the need for a brand new school at Warnervale. I believe this will be a big step forward in the growth and development of Warnervale.”

Mr MacDonald said, “The Department of Education will be informing the Central Coast community of the details of the school including its size, configuration, cost and all the associated planning details in the near future. The NSW Liberal National Government has committed to a work commencement date in 2018/19.”

Education Minister Rob Stokes said NSW public schools are expected to enrol an additional 164,000 students by 2031, and these school projects will provide improved and expanded learning environments for the students.

“These projects will ensure students and staff have the resources they need to succeed in the 21st century,” Mr Stokes said.

“The NSW Government is working hard to provide high-quality education facilities for students and their communities now and into the future.”
