Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said students from Terrigal High School and Woodport Public School were welcomed back to school this year with new facilities, thanks to the NSW Government’s commitment to reducing the NSW school maintenance backlog.
According to Adam Crouch, more than $800,000 was spent completing maintenance projects across the two schools, with Terrigal High School receiving a new disability access ramp, modification to its toilets, fencing improvements and replacement of all doors in the Block B building.
Woodport Public School had new flooring installed in its A Block and L Block buildings.
Adam Crouch said local school budget allocations are also being increased.
“The Resource Allocation Model (RAM) funding gives local Principals the freedom to make the local decisions, and this funding is being increased by $442,733, to a record $5,701,214, for Terrigal electorate schools in 2019.
“Our schools can choose to use the additional funds to hire more staff, buy new IT equipment, instruments or sports equipment, whatever each school community decides will best meet their unique teaching and learning needs,” Crouch said.
