Two primary schools in the Southern Highlands will benefit from round three of the NSW Government's $120 million Regional Renewal Program.
The program has delivered hundreds of projects for regional schools including sporting courts, upgrades to bathrooms and libraries.
Member for Wollondilly Nathaniel Smith said it was great to see schools in the Southern Highlands benefit from the NSW Government's commitment to moder revitalised school facilities.
"I am excited to see both Hill Top Public School and Glenquarry Public School benefit from round three of the renewal program," he said.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the Regional Renewal Program was driven by what school communities wanted and included work such as upgrades to school playgrounds, sport courts and libraries.
"I'm thrilled to see even more regional projects approved for funding in this next round of the program. All of the projects were put forward by the schools, so they are investments that we know the school community wants," Ms Mitchell said.
"Overall, we will see more $3 million invested in regional school infrastructure in this third tranche of the program."
The programs are supporting more than 2,600 jobs across regional and metro NSW, and wherever possible, schools will use local contractors and suppliers ensuring the positive impacts of this stimulus are felt as far and wide as possible.
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.
