Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott today welcomed the investment in local schools in the Baulkham Hills electorate.
“Every child deserves to have access to great facilities, wonderful teachers and get an excellent education and that is what we are delivering for students here in Baulkham Hills,” Mr Elliott said.
Education Minister Rob Stokes said this program is another example of how this Government is committed to public education and delivering local infrastructure to support communities right across NSW.
“Just like your family home, there are always jobs to be done to keep our schools in top condition,” Mr Stokes said.
“We are making good use of the summer break to carry out important projects while students are off enjoying their holidays.
“With a $25 billion property portfolio of 2,200 schools there will always be maintenance to be done, but good management will keep the list as short as possible, and we are here doing just that.”
The summer holiday blitz is part of the NSW Government’s record $747 million school maintenance investment over the next four years announced in the 2017 Budget, allowing each and every school across the State to have their maintenance project lists slashed by December 2018.
