$70 million boost for northern Sydney schools
The NSW Government will commence a major capital works program to provide new schools and new classrooms at existing schools in the northern Sydney area.
The Minister for Education, Adrian Piccoli, today visited Mowbray Public School on the North Shore to announce the $70 million Northern Sydney Schools Plan.
A new primary school will be built on the Lower North Shore and will be open for students in 2016. The new school will cater for students in Kindergarten to Year 6.
A new comprehensive, co-educational high school will be created by refurbishing the existing Bradfield College at Crows Nest, which will be relocating to new facilities at St Leonards TAFE in late 2014.
The new high school will be completed and ready for Year 7 students in 2015.
Mowbray Public School also benefits through the Northern Sydney Schools Plan, with a redevelopment delivering new classrooms replacing aged buildings.
The plan also includes:
- the creation of a bush campus at Chatswood High School to meet growing enrolments at Chatswood Public School, with 12 extra classrooms
- permanent classrooms at Artarmon Public School
- permanent classrooms at Harbord Public School
- permanent classrooms at Lane Cove West Public School.
