Liverpool is one step closer to a brand new school following the release of the indicative site plans by the NSW Government.
The new school will be built on the side of the Liverpool Boys and Girls High Schools, and will cater for the projected growth in the Liverpool area.
The school proposes to provide new flexible learning spaces, and core facilities, including a hall, library, outdoor learning spaces and open play space. The school will also provide dedicated OOSH and preschool facilities.
Further planning will inform the size of the school, potential staging requirements, and take into consideration future student enrolment projections.
State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons MP, said the new school will help cater for the fast-growing school age population in the Liverpool area.
“I look forward to the community engagement starting and am pleased the planning process is already well under away” Ms Gibbons said.
Education Minister, the Hon. Sarah Mitchell MLC said she was proud of the work the NSW Government was doing as part of the largest-ever investment in its public schools.
“I’m thrilled that we’ve reached this milestone for a new primary school in Liverpool, which will deliver the high-quality school resources students need to succeed,” Ms Mitchell said.
Planning for the upgrade at Liverpool West Public School is progressing as well, with the schematic design and State Significant Development Application lodgement set to occur early 2021.
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 NSW.
