Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School in Wyoming will get 8 new classrooms using funding provided by the NSW Government.

The project is receiving $ $1,111,970 to support the $1,968,904 project under the Building Grants Assistance Scheme, with further funds provided by the school community.

This project is for the demolition and reconstruction of general learning area of a more contemporary design.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC welcomed the funding and congratulated Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School for their successful project.

“This funding will help Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School get these works off the ground and I’m delighted the NSW Government is able to support this project,” Mr MacDonald said.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said the Building Grants Assistance Scheme was an important initiative to support local school communities.

“This funding will help improve facilities so schools are equipped to meet the learning needs of students today and into the future,” Mr Stokes said.

In 2015 the NSW Government announced an additional $50 million dollars over four years for non-government schools under the Building Grants Assistance Scheme.

The grants are directed towards independent and Catholic schools with the greatest need, to help schools cater for growing enrolments and to refurbish or build new facilities.

BGAS is administered by the Association of Independent Schools NSW and the NSW Catholic Block Grant Authorities and funded by the NSW Government.

Since 2011, the NSW Government has committed more than $5 billion to both government and non-government school facilities to ensure students have the best possible learning environments.
