Meadowbank TAFE will be transformed into the State’s first technology focused TAFE college together with a new K-12 school.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Ryde MP Victor Dominello yesterday unveiled plans for the new education facilities which will include a new primary school, high school and a revitalised
“We are investing in a world class education precinct in Meadowbank to cater for the needs of students at a range of stages in their lives” the premier said.
“The surrounding area is renowned as a leading technology hub and it makes sense to put technology front and centre of the revitalised TAFE site,” she said.
Ryde MP and Minister for Finance and Property Victor Dominello has announced as part of the proposed new Meadowbank Education Precinct Marsden High School will be relocated to the new precinct and cater for up to 1500 secondary school students on the site of the old Meadowbank Boys High School site.
This will be double the current capacity at Marsden High’s West Ryde site. Meadowbank Public School will also have its capacity doubled to 1000 places following its relocation to the new precinct.
Victor Dominello said “what we are unveiling is a NSW first and this new education precinct will cater for the community’s growing number of families”.
“An exciting win for the community is that the existing Marsden High School site will become a sporting facility primarily catering for netball.
“And equally exciting is the current Meadowbank Public School site will become public open space once the move is complete”.
The Meadowbank Education Precinct will be open for students towards the end of 2021. The proposed new high school and primary school are among more than 170 projects being funded
by the NSW Government over four years under a record breaking $6 billion school building program.
Victor Dominello claimed this is the biggest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of Australia.
