The community of Edmondson Park is one step closer to a brand new primary school with the Premier, the Hon. Gladys Berejiklian MP, Minister for Education, the Hon. Sarah Mitchell MLC, and State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons MP, today confirming a site for the new school.

The announcement comes as the NSW Government confirms the acceleration of funding for the project as part of its COVID-19 Recovery Plan.

Over $300 million has been committed across three new and three upgraded school projects. It is estimated the projects will support over 1,500 jobs.

“We’re committed to delivering high-quality school infrastructure across the state, which is why we are building a new primary school in Edmondson Park,” Minister Mitchell said.

State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons MP, welcomed the NSW Liberal and  National Government’s commitment to delivering this project in the community.

“A new primary school at Edmondson Park will be a valuable asset for local families and will benefit the community for generations,” Ms Gibbons said.

The new primary school is currently in design with the procurement of a construction contractor to commence by the end of the year.

The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of our State.
