Work on new toilet amenities for infant students at Mudgee Public School was completed recently, just in time for the commencement of term three and the arrival of a new principal at the school.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders visited the school recently, where he inspected the works and welcomed John Carters to the role of principal.
Mr Saunders said the complete upgrading of the infants toilet block makes a noticeable change to the school, and was one of his election commitments in the lead-up to the 2019 poll.
“In February 2019 I stood at Mudgee Public School alongside the Deputy Premier and committed to providing $100,000 to upgrade the toilet facilities. The infants part of that project is now completed, with the primary section to be finished soon, and a further $500,000 worth of work is scheduled to be carried out at the school going forward,” Mr Saunders said.
“The need for the upgraded toilet facilities had been identified as a priority for the school community, and it really is a great feeling to see that work done.
“The NSW Government is working hard right across the state to improve the infrastructure at our local schools, with funding for significant upgrades to outdoor learning spaces, student and staff facilities, and improvements to accessibility and infrastructure.”
Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government is strengthening the state’s world class education system by investing in the maintenance and infrastructure needs of local schools.
“These improvements demonstrate a long-term commitment to taking care of existing schools and providing students and teachers with the very best educational facilities,” Ms Mitchell said. 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.
