Planning is under way to upgrade facilities at Manly Village Public School.
The process will consider existing facilities and space currently used by Community Northern Beaches. It will also look at projected population changes to inform the plan and timeline for delivery.
Member for Manly James Griffin said he was excited planning is progressing.
“In this primary school cluster, additional capacity has been delivered through more than 80 new and refurbished classrooms at Curl Curl North Public School, Manly Vale Public School and Brookvale Public School.
“For Manly Village Public School, the Department of Education will look to improve the standard and design of learning spaces and administration facilities at the school.
“With the community centre moving to their new location at 52 Raglan Street, the opportunity to expand and improve the facilities at Manly Village was one we couldn’t miss,” said Mr Griffin.
It is anticipated that the plan will be developed over the coming months in consultation with stakeholders and a scope of works will be prepared. The school leadership and parents will assist the Department of Education through both the planning and upgrading process.
A spokesperson for James Griffin said, “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.
“In addition, a record $1.3 billion is being spent on school maintenance over five years, along with a record $500 million for the sustainable Cooler Classrooms program to provide air conditioning to schools. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.”
