Hundreds of Glenmore Park families will benefit from the record investment in education by the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government, with the official opening of the Performing Arts and Learning Centre (the Centre) at Glenmore Park High School.
Glenmore Park High School is one of the latest schools to benefit for the NSW Government’s multi-billion dollar school building program.
Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP said the Glenmore Park High School community is thrilled to open the new $12.0m facility.
“This investment is delivering a new performing arts centre together with learning spaces in modern and airconditioned comfort. The Centre is also fitted with the most up-to-date lighting, sound and production equipment.”
“After more than 13 years of advocacy by the Glenmore Park High School community for the Centre, today is realisation of that dream.”
“I am proud as the local member to have committed at the last election to deliver the Centre. Today I am delivering on my election commitment.” Mrs Davies said.
The scope of the new centre includes a performance hall with seating capacity for over 400, two flexible learning spaces, a raised stage area with back holding rooms, change rooms, storage and more.
Minister for Education and Early Learning the Hon. Sarah Mitchell said it was great to see Glenmore Park High School and other schools benefiting from the NSW Government’s historic investment in school infrastructure.
“It is great to be at Glenmore Park High School to officially open their new facility, which I know students and the wider community are excited to use.
“We have delivered six upgraded schools for Term 4, despite the challenges of weather and COVID, and I am committed to making sure every student no matter where they live in NSW has access to a high-quality school.”
“We have seen the delivery of 23 new and upgraded schools since the start of this year, with more than $1 billion invested in these projects. More than any other government in Australia,” Ms Mitchell said.
The NSW Government is investing $8.6 billion in school infrastructure over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 160 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This builds on the more than $9.1 billion invested in projects delivered since 2017, a program of $17.7 billion in public education infrastructure.
I look forward to coming to a musical production in the new centre and seeing students enjoy access to this world class facility.
