Students and staff at Penrith Public School now have access to a new state-of-the-art building, thanks to a $10 million investment from the NSW Government.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell today officially unveiled the new two storey building, as the NSW Government continues its record $6.5 billion rollout of 190 new and upgraded schools.

“The upgrade at Penrith Public School has delivered 12 cutting-edge classrooms, to give students the best possible learning environment to thrive in,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“This is yet another example of what our record investment in new and upgraded schools is delivering for students and teachers right across the State.”

Ms Mitchell said Penrith Public School is one of 22 new and upgraded public schools that have opened in 2019.

“Seventeen new and upgraded schools opened their doors to students in time for Term 1 and we have delivered another five in time for Term 2,” Ms Mitchell said.

“The NSW Government will continue to get on with the job of delivering for schools across the State, so every child has access to world-class facilities.”

Minister for Western Sydney and Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres has welcomed the significant upgrade at Penrith Public School.

“Penrith Public School is now the perfect example of Penrith heritage and new Penrith coming together,” Mr Ayres said.

The NSW Government’s record investment in new and upgraded schools is on top of the $1.3 billion to wipe the school maintenance to zero and the $500 million Cool Classrooms Fund to provide new air conditioning units.
