First Peek at Major Upgrades to Killara High School

Monday, 05 November 2018

The Killara High School community will enjoy a first glimpse of the school’s upcoming expansion, with new concept designs released today by the NSW Government.

The major building upgrade follows another major capital build just a few years ago.

The latest project will deliver a new three-storey school building with 15 classrooms to cater for the needs of the local community well into the future. This will allow demountables on the school site to be removed, freeing up valuable open space for students to enjoy.

Two new science labs and upgrades to the covered outdoor learning area, toilets and staff facilities will also be delivered as part of the project.

Member for Davidson Jonathan O’Dea said the project will commence in December this year, and will help meet future demand for student places in the local area.

“This is a vital project for our community, and I’m pleased to have collaborated with the Education Minister and the NSW Government to deliver these wonderful new facilities,” Mr O’Dea said.

“This major upgrade will be a fantastic, modern facility that will help us support local students to excel at school and get the best possible start to life.”

Education Minister Rob Stokes said the Killara High School expansion was another example of the NSW Government delivering the top-quality educational facilities that local students and communities deserve.

“We want to build schools that inspire our students every day, and if these new pictures of the future Killara High School are anything to go by, then I’m sure they’ll do just that,” Mr Stokes said.

This project is part of the NSW Government’s record $6 billion school building program over the next four years, which will deliver more than 170 new and upgraded schools to support communities throughout NSW. This is the largest investment into public school infrastructure by any state government in Australian history.
