The Chatswood community today celebrated the completion of major upgrades at Chatswood Public School that have delivered 60 new and upgraded classrooms and state of the art spaces for our children.
Member for Willoughby Tim James was excited to open the upgrade alongside school Principal Alex Montgomery, leaders in education and school infrastructure, excited staff, parents, and students.
“These incredible new facilities will ensure generations of local children to come flourish and our teachers have the resources to give them the very best start in life.” Mr James said.
The major upgrade is part of a $250 million redevelopment of Chatswood Public School and Chatswood High School that were delivered by the previous NSW Liberal and Nationals Government.
“Every public school in the Willoughby electorate has been upgraded and two new schools were committed to as part of the Liberal’s strong legacy of investment in our future and commitment to quality public education for our next generation.”
“Thank you to the teams at the School P&C, Richard Crookes Constructions, School Infrastructure NSW, and the whole school community for building such a brilliant new home for the school.”
A new sports court and yarning circle have been handed over joining the impressive new school hall that will become a focal point for the school community as well as the new home of Out of School Hours Care.
New buildings P1 and P2 opened earlier in the year. P1 contains general learning classrooms, three special support classrooms and outdoor learning spaces across seven storeys. Building P2 provides general learning spaces across five storeys, a new library, canteen, staffroom, amenities, and a rooftop soft fall play space with a Ninja course and views across the neighbourhood.
Work continues on the major upgrade of Chatswood High School which will be completed for Term 4 this year.
