STUDENTS at Stanwell Park Public School will soon be enjoying a brand new hall.

A development application for the project was lodged with Wollongong City Council today.

The new hall at Stanwell Park Public School will accommodate a canteen, an out of school hours care facility, and storage.

The funding announcement also includes the construction a multi-purpose hall at Engadine High School in the Sutherland Shire.

Construction on both projects is scheduled to start in mid-2021. 

State MP for Heathcote, Lee Evans has welcomed the progress on the projects, and said he was excited to see plans for the halls progressing.

“They will benefit the schools and the local communities for years to come,” Mr Evans said.

NSW Minister for Education, Sarah Mitchell said the funding for the halls is part of the biggest investment in school infrastructure in the state.

“I can’t wait to see these hall projects progress over the coming months,” Ms Mitchell said.

The NSW Government is investing $7 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver more than 200 new and upgraded schools.
