Stanwell Park’s new school hall opens for business

STANWELL Park Public School’s new $4.9 million multi-purpose hall was officially opened today.

The hall includes a canteen, Out of School Hours’ Care facilities and storage facilities.

State MP for Heathcote, Lee Evans said he was delighted to be at the school to see the completed project.

“I announced this project as a pre-election promise in 2019 and I am delighted the Stanwell Park School community trusted me to deliver their new school hall to be enjoyed now and well into the future,” Mr Evans said.

“School halls play an important role as the natural gathering point for learning, sports and performance but also as a great place to manifest school values and celebrate individual and collective achievements.

“This is a great project for this community and an amazing piece of infrastructure and I’m so glad to be here today to share the students’ excitement.”

NSW Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell said she was pleased that the NSW Government had delivered this major upgrade for Stanwell Park Public School.

“The NSW Liberals and Nationals Government continues to prioritise the educational needs of our young people and to deliver important school infrastructure to communities around the state,” Ms Mitchell said.

“Right across NSW, communities are witnessing the benefits of our commitment to public education infrastructure.”

Mr Evans 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. He said 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.
