Planning is underway for the upgrade at Kingscliff High School, with the lodgement of the State Significant Development application.
The upgrade at Kingscliff High School includes a new library, new senior learning environment, refurbished hospitality facilities, creative and performing arts building and a new sports pavilion.
Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said the community is excited that the longer-term need for local schools in the area is being met.
“The Tweed is a growing community and the upgrade at Kingscliff High School is part of the government’s commitment to supporting families in this area,” Mr Provest said.
“I’m looking forward to the construction phase of this upgrade and to the benefits it will bring students in the area.
“We are delivering on our commitment to give local students the latest facilities and support the growing school community building a safer and strong regional NSW.
“This is an exciting addition and will deliver modern resources to local students both now and for generations to come.” Mr Provest said.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is committed to providing new and upgraded schools for communities across the state.
“We’re making the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW, and I’m pleased that Kingscliff students will benefit from this investment,” Ms Mitchell said.
The NSW Government is investing $7 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver more than 200 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
