The NSW Government is investing $6 billion over the next four years to deliver more than 170 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. In addition, a record $847 million is being spent on school maintenance over four years, along with a record $500 million for the sustainable Cooler Classrooms program to provide air conditioning to schools. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
A project is underway to deliver a new primary school for Kindergarten to Year 6 located on Fairway Drive in Bella Vista (note: this suburb was reported as Kellyville prior to The Hills Shire Council suburb changes on 29 June 2018).
The project will deliver 40 flexible learning spaces, a new hall, covered outdoor learning spaces, and space for up to 1,000 students.
