A major milestone in the NSW’s largest school building program was marked this week in Tamworth with the delivery of the 50th school capital project for 2020, more than any other year.

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell and Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson joined the students and teachers of Tamworth Public School on Monday to open the $14.8 million upgraded school facilities.

Ms Mitchell said the 50th project completion for the year represents a $1.5 billion investment in our schools.

“I’m thrilled to join the students and staff of Tamworth Public School and proud that the 50th project for the State in 2020 is being delivered in regional NSW,” Ms Mitchell said.

“Our historic $6.7 billion investment in school infrastructure is changing the education landscape across the State, benefitting hundreds of communities, Tamworth being the latest.

The upgrade at Tamworth Public School delivered seven new learning spaces, a new hall, new staff facilities, three activities areas and the refurbishment of the former teacher’s cottage.

Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson said he was proud the NSW Government had delivered such a significant project for Tamworth.

“I’m pleased to be here today to be able to see the wonderful new facilities first hand,” Mr Anderson said.

“Tamworth continues to benefit from this Government’s record investment education.”

“This major upgrade will benefit the local community for generations to come.’’
