BRAIDWOOD CENTRAL SCHOOL MOVES FORWARD
Work on the major upgrade of Braidwood Central School has begun, with Member for Monaro John Barilaro today turning the first sod.
The significant milestone comes after preparation work was carried out and signage and fencing was installed around the site.
Mr Barilaro said today marks an exciting milestone for the local community, with the $12 million project set to benefit students, teachers and staff for years to come.
“This upgrade will ensure our children have access to the best facilities available, so they can achieve their potential and get the most out of their school experience,” Mr Barilaro said.
The upgrade will deliver eight new air conditioned and innovative classrooms, including two specialist learning areas for music and drama.
The administration and staff facilities will also be upgraded, while the outdoor play spaces will be refurbished.
Mr Barilaro said the major upgrade is an important project for Braidwood, and will ensure the community has the facilities it needs well into the future.
“More and more families are moving to Braidwood and this upgrade will ensure we have the high-quality facilities to cater for a growing population,” Mr Barilaro said.
The major upgrade of Braidwood Central School is being carried out as part of the NSW Government’s record $6.7 billion school building program to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools.
In addition, a record $1.3 billion is being spent on school maintenance over five years, along with a record $500 million for the sustainable Cooler Classrooms program to provide air conditioning to schools.
This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
During construction, School Infrastructure NSW will work closely with the school community and neighbours to minimise impacts where possible.
