  • Camden Schools Maintenance

    Posted on 15 December, 2017

    More than $2.5 million will be spent on 16 school maintenance projects in Camden, which are running over the summer holiday period.


    Projects at local schools will include repairing and replacing roofs, coating systems, new floor coverings and painting works.


    Member for Camden Chris Patterson welcomed the investment in our local schools.


    “Every child deserves to have access to great facilities, wonderful teachers and get an excellent education and that is what we are delivering for students here in Camden,” Mr Patterson said.


    Education Minister Rob Stokes said this program is another example of how this Government is committed to public education and delivering local infrastructure to support communities right across NSW.

    “Just like your family home, there are always jobs to be done to keep our schools in top condition,” Mr Stokes said.

    “We are making good use of the summer break to carry out important projects while students are off enjoying their holidays.

    “With a $25 billion property portfolio of 2,200 schools there will always be maintenance to be done, but good management will keep the list as short as possible, and we are here doing just that.”


    The summer holiday blitz is part of the NSW Government’s record $747 million school maintenance investment over the next four years announced in the 2017 Budget, allowing each and every school across the State to have their maintenance project lists slashed by December 2018.
