First Peek at Designs for Jamison & Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School’s New Multi-Purpose Halls

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today announced that plans are forging ahead to deliver new multipurpose halls at Jamison High School & Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School (Nepean CAPA) with the first designs now released by the NSW Government.

Stuart Ayres said he was excited to share the first images of the halls with the community.

“I’m proud that the NSW Government is delivering these halls at Jamison High School and Nepean CAPA. These infrastructure upgrades will benefit the schools and the local community for years to come,” Mr Ayres said.

The halls will be custom designed to suit each school’s needs, and depending on the school, they will include features such as  indoor sports courts, space to accommodate seating, sports and large equipment storage rooms, toilets, and back-of-house facilities.

The halls at Jamison High School and Nepean CAPA are part of a $50 million program to deliver new and upgraded halls at 10 schools across the state.

Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said she was proud that the halls program will benefit more than 6,000 NSW public school students.

“I’m delighted to see the new designs for the hall projects as this is a really important program for our schools,” Ms Mitchell said. “School halls are the natural gathering point for students and staff, and they can also be a vital part of a thriving local community.”

“As part of the planning process for some of the halls, the Department of Education will look at opportunities for community use as well as the possibility of sharing some of the facilities with neighbouring schools in the area.”

Current planning for halls includes developing a master plan and concept design, which will be shared with the local communities as the project progresses.

The Department of Education is working to complete the detailed hall designs and initiate a tender process before the end of this year, with construction scheduled to start across all projects in 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.
