Mugloa MP Tanya Davies visited Glenmore Park High School today for the official sod turn to mark the beginning of construction work for the new performing arts and learning centre at the school.
The new facility will include a multipurpose performance hall with seating for over 400 students, a raised stage area with back-of-house holding rooms, stage rigging, theatre sound system, change rooms and stores and two flexible learning spaces.
The new facility will benefit the schools linked with the Glenmore Park Learning Alliance (GPLA) including Regentville, Surveyors Creek, Glenmore Park, Wallacia, Mulgoa, Warragamba, Luddenham Public Schools and the wider Glenmore Park community.
Mrs Davies said she is proud to be delivering on her election commitment for the Performing Arts and Learning Centre at Glenmore Park High School.
“I am so thrilled to be here marking the start of construction for the new Performing Arts and Learning Centre at Glenmore Park High School,” Mrs Davies said.
“Facilities like these are the natural gathering point for students and staff, and they can also be a vital part of a thriving local school community.
“This is a very important project for the local community, and I look forward to seeing the new facilities taking shape in the coming months.”
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said she is glad to see this project progressing.
“The Liberals & Nationals Government is delivering record funding in school infrastructure and I am so pleased to see work start on the new facilities at Glenmore Park High School,” Ms Mitchell said.
