Major upgrade for Cherrybrook Technology High School

25 June 2015

Minister for Education Adrian Piccoli and Member for Epping Damien Tudehope have today visited Cherrybrook Technology High School to announce an upgrade of more than $7 million, including 18 additional permanent classrooms to address the expected growth in local enrolments.

Mr Piccoli said the new three-storey building will include classrooms and specialist teaching spaces for activities such as multimedia studies and visual arts.

"This major upgrade also includes refurbishing existing teaching spaces to create permanent science laboratories and classrooms," Mr Piccoli said.

"Planning for the new building and refurbishments is underway, with construction to begin once this process has been completed. The new facilities are expected to be ready for students and teachers in early 2018."

Mr Tudehope said the number of students at Cherrybrook Technology High School has almost doubled in the past 20 years due to the popularity of the school.

"These new flexible facilities will support teachers as they deliver 21st century learning," Mr Tudehope said.

"The works will also include a connected open space renovation, creating a welcoming and accessible school with indoor and outdoor teaching and learning spaces. Once completed, a number of the onsite demountables are expected to be removed to create more outdoor space."

The NSW Liberals & Nationals 2015-2016 Budget included a total capital investment of $456 million in NSW public school education infrastructure. This 27 per cent increase will help cater for growing school enrolments across the State.
