The NSW Government’s Regional Renewal Program is delivering improvements to 20 schools across Tweed.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said it is great to see local schools benefiting from the NSW Government’s historic investment in public education infrastructure.

“This program has supported upgrades to local schools including Bilambil Public School and Pottsville Beach Public School, Mr Provest said.

“This $120 million investment from government, combined with contributions from local school communities, has seen 20 Tweed schools benefit from this investment providing students with engaging and modern learning spaces.”

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the Regional Renewal Program is driven by what school communities want and includes work such as upgrades to school playgrounds, sport courts and libraries.

“I’m thrilled that regional projects are being delivered for our school communities,” Ms Mitchell said.

The program is supporting more than 1,300 jobs across regional NSW, and wherever possible, local contractors and suppliers have been engaged ensuring the positive impacts of this stimulus are felt as far and wide as possible.

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.
