Two schools in the Baulkham Hills electorate are set to receive new and improved school facilities as part of the NSW Government’s $120 million Metro Renewal Program.
The $950,000 funding package for Baulkham Hills will include a toilet upgrade at Jasper Road Public School and a science lab upgrade at Baulkham Hills High School.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott welcomed the funding, saying it would ensure the best possible outcome for Baulkham Hills students after the uncertainty and disruptions they faced in 2020.
“I’m delighted these projects have been included in the first round of the School Renewal Program,” Mr Elliott said.
“The School Renewal Program is essential for our students so that they can thrive in a great learning environment, no matter where they live or what their circumstances are.
“Delivery of these projects will be undertaken within the next 18 months as part of the NSW Government’s economic stimulus package for NSW schools and the State’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan.”
The Metro Renewal Program provides a government co-contribution of between 50 to 80 per cent for school infrastructure improvements at high priority schools in metropolitan areas.
The NSW Government is investing $7 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver more than 200 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW.
