Improved school facilities for students in Mulgoa

Students in the Mulgoa electorate are set to benefit from improvements to their school facilities thanks to a $148 million investment across the State, earmarked in the 2022/23 NSW Budget.

Erskine Park High School, Fernhill School and Horsley Park Public School will receive funding under the Minor Capital Works program to make upgrades and improvements to learning facilities. This will include upgrades to shelter infrastructure, Vision Works, and Drop-off area improvements.

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP said it is important we have quality facilities to help our students thrive at school.

“School environments play a crucial role in students’ learning experience, so it is important that we provide the quality teaching and learning spaces,” Mrs Davies said.

“This funding will help make sure all students have high-quality facilities and that the schools are equipped to manage increases in student numbers.”

“Local businesses will also be encouraged to bid for the works through the Local Trade Scheme so that they can also benefit from this funding. This will help ensure the investment supports our local tradies, particularly in regional communities.”

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.
