If you were wondering what is happening at Kingscliff Public School, construction is well underway on an upgrade.

The project will deliver new flexible learning spaces, replacing all classrooms including demountable buildings, as well as a new library, new administration and staff spaces, new outdoor spaces and a redeveloped school entry.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said he was pleased to see the project progressing for the community. ‘This will bring local students the latest facilities and support the growing school community and this is an exciting addition.’

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government was making the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW. ‘I’m pleased that the Kingscliff students will benefit from this investment.’

The NSW Government is investing $7.9 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 215 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW.
