Master Planning Underway for Manly Village Public School Upgrade

Manly students and families will benefit from upgraded educational facilities at Manly Village Public School, with master planning now under way.

The planning process will incorporate space currently used by Community Northern Beaches, review existing facilities and consider local population projections to inform the scope of works and a timeline for delivery.

Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government is committed to public education and to deliver better school infrastructure facilities right across NSW.

“I am pleased that our historic education infrastructure spending is making a difference for local school communities and providing the resources our students need and deserve,” Ms Mitchell said.

Member for Manly James Griffin said he was excited planning is now progressing. 

“In this primary school cluster, additional capacity has been delivered through more than 80 new and refurbished classrooms at Curl Curl North Public School, Manly Vale Public School and Brookvale Public School,” Mr Griffin said.

“For Manly Village Public School, the Department of Education will look to improve the standard and design of learning spaces and administration facilities at the school.

“Learning facilities that are fit for purpose will support the delivery of best-practice pedagogies and improve educational outcomes.

“With the community centre moving to their new location at 52 Raglan Street, the opportunity to expand and improve the facilities at Manly Village was one we couldn’t miss.”

It is anticipated that the plan will be further developed over coming months in consultation with the relevant stakeholders and a scope of works will be prepared.

The school leadership and parents will assist the Department of Education through both the planning and upgrading process.

The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW.

In addition, a record $1.3 billion is being spent on school maintenance over five years, along with a record $500 million for the sustainable Cooler Classrooms program to provide air conditioning to schools.

This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
