Communities across Manly are set to benefit from new and improved school facilities thanks to the NSW Government’s $120 million Metro Renewal Program. 

Member for Manly James Griffin said the Metro Renewal Program is driven by what school communities want, and includes work such as upgrades to school halls, science labs and staff facilities.

“I am so pleased to see seven projects in Manly benefiting our students across the electorate,” Mr Griffin said.  

“The NSW Liberals and Nationals Government are ensuring that students no matter where they live in the state have access to modern learning facilities.” 

Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell said it is so important to prioritise the delivery of modern facilities to all schools across the state.  

“Schools across NSW are receiving upgrades to school halls, canteens and more,” Ms Mitchell said.

“The NSW Government funding will provide a boost, not only to local school infrastructure projects and local economy by supporting local tradies, but also help make sure these school continue to be a proud part of their communities.”

  1. Harbord Public School – Administration Upgrade – Completed

This builds on the more than $9.1 billion invested in projects delivered since 2017, a program of $17.7 billion in public education infrastructure.
