Jordan Springs Public School Construction Begins
Western Sydney resident and member of the NSW Legislative Council Shayne Mallard MP, together with Liberal candidate for Londonderry Belinda Hill, officially launched construction works for the new $55 million Jordan Springs Public School last month.
“This new school will take 600 students with the capacity to extend to 1000 students in the future” Shayne said. “It will be a state-of-the-art facility, fully air conditioned and open for enrolments in 2021”.
Shayne Mallard was joined by the Liberal candidate for Londonderry Belinda Hill who welcomed the commencement of construction.
“As I move around the community of Jordan Springs, I hear the excitement from the families about the new school in their community” Belinda said.
“Contrary to some misinformation, Jordan Springs Public School was slated to be delivered in 2021 and will be open on time”.
The new school is part of the NSW Government’s record $6 billion school building program to deliver more than 170 new and upgraded schools, which also includes a new school at Wilton Junction.
Education Minister Rob Stokes said the Liberal and National Government’s record investment in schools was in stark contrast to Labor’s.
“The last time Labor was in power, they shut down 90 schools, resulting in a loss of more than 500 classrooms and 2000 student places” he said.
In addition to the record-breaking school building program, the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government has committed an unprecedented investment to eliminate the school maintenance backlog so that every public school in the State provides the world-class facilities that our students and teachers deserve.
