Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott today announced Baulkham Hills schools will
receive facility upgrades as part of the Liberal & Nationals Government’s 2014-15 Budget.
The works are scheduled to commence within the 2014/15 financial year.
“These upgrades will greatly improve the learning facilities at our local schools,” Mr Elliott said.
These upgrades include an upgraded science laboratory for Model Farms High School, new fencing and covered walkways for North Rocks Public School, replacement floor coverings for Burnside Public School, upgraded access facilities at Crestwood Public School and new lighting at Matthew Pearce Public School.
Funding for these projects was approved in the recent State Budget.
In 2014/15, the NSW Government is providing $400 million in capital works funding to NSW public schools.
This capital works funding will go towards 16 new major building projects, the continuation of 21 major building projects, and numerous minor capital works projects.
Since 2011 the Liberal & Nationals Government has provided funding of more than $3.1
billion for maintenance and capital works in schools; and announced 18 new and relocated schools, and 44 major school upgrades at a total cost of more than $626 million.
“The Liberal & Nationals Government is determined to provide the best learning
environments possible in our schools,” Mr Elliott said.
