Students at Killara Public School are set to benefit from brand new learning spaces as part of a $6 Million upgrade, continuing the New South Wales Government’s record investment in education infrastructure.

New 2-storey block contains 8 future-focused learning spaces, making it perfectly placed to meet the needs of future generations of local students.

Education Minister Rob Stokes and Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens visited the school today to inspect the building works.

“New spaces are designed to ensure that local students have the best possible learning environments to prepare them for life as citizens in 21st century Australia.” Minister Stokes said.

Mr. Henskens said the upgrade of the school was a major investment that would improve the learning and teaching environment for local students.

Upgrade also includes new amenities for students and a brand new multi-purpose sports court. As part of the project, 7 existing demountable classrooms will be removed to make way for the new permanent school building.

“School community will not only benefit from great new modern classrooms, but a significant added benefit is that the students will soon have access to more playground space once the demountables are removed.” Mr. Henskens said.

Minister Stokes said he was delighted to see the New South Wales Government’s historic education infrastructure spending was making a difference for school communities like Killara.

This project is one of more than 120 new schools and major upgrades the New South Wales Government is funding over the next 4 years under a $4.2 Billion school building program announced as part of the 2017/18 state Budget. This is the biggest investment in school infrastructure in the history of New South Wales.
