Building work will get underway early next year on a new primary school at North Kellyville with a $40 million investment by the NSW Government.
A tender has just been awarded to finalise the design and build the new school on Hezlett Road to meet the educational needs of the growing local community.
The new facilities will include 40 new state-of-the art future-focused classrooms, along with a hall and library. The landscaped outdoor spaces are set to feature Covered Outdoor Learning Areas (COLA), and a range of play spaces and sporting facilities.
The new school will open in two stages, accommodating up to 500 students when the first students commence in 2019. When fully complete in 2020, it will host up to 1,000 students, more than a third of the area’s student population.
Member for Castle Hill Ray Williams said the future is exciting for parents, teachers and students.
“It is vitally important that our children have the top-quality educational facilities they need to thrive at school. I’m delighted the NSW Government is delivering this new school for our community,” Mr Williams said.
Education Minister Rob Stokes said the project was part of an unprecedented school building program currently underway across NSW that is also delivering major upgrades to increase capacity and improve the facilities at Samuel Gilbert Public School.
“Our investment in a new public school in North Kellyville is a great example of how we are working to ensure every NSW student is able to receive an excellent education at a great local school.” Rob Stokes said.
The new primary school at North Kellyville is one of more than 120 projects funded by the NSW Government over the next four years under a record breaking $4.2 billion school building program announced as part of the 2017/18 State Budget. This is the biggest investment in school infrastructure in the history of NSW.
