Chatswood High School upgrade reaches major topping out milestone

A major milestone has been reached on the Chatswood High School upgrade with the topping out of the final new building and the final concrete pour.

Member for Willoughby Tim James took part in a ceremony on the building’s roof to mark this significant point in the project alongside school principal David Osland and the teams at School Infrastructure NSW and Richard Crookes Constructions.

“It is impressive to see how this school has been transformed by this once in a generation investment that will ensure our children have a quality learning environment that will allow them to flourish.”

“I am committed to investing in quality education for our future generations and delivering two new schools, major upgrades at Chatswood Public School and Chatswood High School and a program of upgrades at all of our area’s public schools.” Mr James said.

The topping out milestone is a construction industry tradition that marks the building reaching its full height. It also marked the final of more than 190 concrete pours on the project.

The new buildings will allow the school to educate up to 2000 students and contain state of the art general learning areas, canteen, administration, library, computer rooms, science rooms, performing arts spaces, music rooms, a hall and a covered outdoor learning area.

Two of the four major new buildings are already open to students and transforming the education provided to children in the Chatswood area.

The upgrades of Chatswood High and nearby Chatswood Public are scheduled for completion in late 2023.
