The Tweed community can look forward to a major upgrade at Kingscliff High School, with construction work now underway.

The upgrade at Kingscliff High School includes new and refurbished learning spaces, a new library, a new creative and performing arts building, new senior learning environment, a new sports pavilion and the refurbishment of hospitality teaching facilities.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest was thrilled with the news that construction is underway.

“This is an important project for the Tweed Heads area. I’m pleased construction has commenced,” Mr Provest said.

“I’m very pleased the NSW Government is prioritising the educational needs of our young people as our communities continue to grow.

“Many locals share my excitement for this project and will be eager to see the development of the school.

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said this is a major project for the Tweed community and will deliver modern learning facilities.

“I’m very pleased the NSW Government is delivering these much-needed resources for local students, and I look forward to seeing the new school facilities starting to take shape in the coming months.”

“It is part of the continued commitment to provide the very best education facilities for public school students in NSW,” Ms Mitchell said.

This follows the completion of early works completed in late 2020 that delivered a new PE pavilion and a covered outdoor learning area.

The NSW Government is investing $7.9 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 215 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
