A new primary school, a new high school and more public open space is coming to Ryde!
🏫 The NSW Government has acquired 3.3 hectares of land at Meadowbank TAFE to create this new education precinct.
🙋♀️ The new site enables Meadowbank Public School to move, doubling its capacity for new students;
🌳 The old Meadowbank Public School site will remain in public hands as open space. Do you want another park? A new playground? A new community hall? I’ll be hosting community forums in due course to obtain our community’s vision for this site – including naming this valuable space!
💲Importantly, this precinct will see tens of millions of dollars invested in Meadowbank TAFE to modernise its facilities.
Ryde, New South Wales desperately needs more open space and more schools, and this update comes in conjunction with upgrades to Kent Road Public School, West Ryde Public School, Denistone East Public School, a new primary school in Smalls Road, a new high school on the Peter Board site that Labor previously sold off, and a new high school in the refurbished Ivanhoe Estate. We are removing demountables, building new classrooms and modernising education in Ryde.
The NSW Government is committed to building schools, not closing them down. I can’t wait to see our new education precinct open 😀
