Schools benefit from Metro Renewal Program

The NSW Government’s Metro Renewal Program is delivering improvements to schools with five new projects across the electorate.

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies said it is great to see local schools benefiting from the NSW Government’s historic investment in public education infrastructure.

“This program has supported upgrades to local schools including Regentville Public School, Clairgate Public School, Cecil Hills Public School, James Erskine Public School and St Clair Public School” Mrs Davies said.

“Since its launch in 2020, schools have benefited from this investment delivering new and improved facilities such as canteen upgrades, shade structures to protect children from the harsh Australian sun and upgrades to playgrounds.”

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the Metro Renewal Program is driven by what school communities want and includes work such as upgrades to school playgrounds, sport courts and libraries. 

“I’m thrilled that metro projects are being delivered for our school communities,” Ms Mitchell said.

“This $120 million investment from government, combined with contributions from local school communities, is delivering for metro schools providing students with engaging and modern learning spaces.”

The program is supporting more than 1,300 jobs across metro Sydney, and wherever possible, local contractors and suppliers have been engaged ensuring the positive impacts of this stimulus are felt as far and wide as possible.

The NSW Government is investing $7.9 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 215 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
