North Sydney Demonstration School Upgrades
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker, today I acknowledge that North Sydney Demonstration School has been given the green light for a major upgrade with funding now approved and construction to start next year. I am excited to announce an overhaul of the school's facilities, including replacing old demountables with 16 new refurbished classrooms, a new school hall, an upgrade to administrative facilities, and improved outdoor learning areas. I would like to thank the Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell MLC who joined me for the announcement and also thank the Department of Education who will commence procurement of a construction contractor as soon as possible. I am grateful to the school community for working alongside me to secure this commitment and I know they are as excited as I am about this milestone, and I would like to thank North Sydney Dem Principal Fiona Davis and the P&C, particularly President David Bond, and past presidents Laurens Libeton, and Luke McElnea for all their work in advocating for this upgrade. Our kids deserve the best start in life, and this record investment in our public education ensures that our local schools continue to do just that.
