The new indoor courts at the new St Ives High Sports Centre

 

The new multi-use indoor sports centre at St Ives High School is now complete, part of a $25 million upgrade to the school.

The new sports centre includes two sports courts, two new learning spaces, a fitness lab, and a seminar room.

In addition to the new sports centre, the upgrade has delivered refurbished technical and applied studies facilities.

Member for Davidson Jonathan O’Dea said the upgraded school will provide students and teachers with innovative learning spaces and modern facilities.

“We want our children to have the best education possible, and providing high-quality school facilities is a key part of that,” Mr O’Dea said.

“We are making the largest investment in public school infrastructure by any State Government in Australian history. This includes building new schools, but also upgrading existing facilities to enhance the educational environment for students across the state.”

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government was building on the State’s world class education system.

“This upgrade at St Ives High School will provide our students and teachers with the resources they deserve,” Ms Mitchell said.

“I’m delighted the NSW Government has delivered on this important project.”

The NSW Government is investing $7 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver more than 200 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW

Local projects include upgrades at St Ives High School, St Ives North Public School, Killara High School, Killara Public School, Ku-ring-gai High School, Waitara Public School and the new Lindfield Learning Village.

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