Thirteen schools across western Sydney will receive $220 million for construction and upgrades, including new classrooms and learning facilities.

Construction has started on the new block at Hurlstone Agricultural High School, which will include five science laboratories and supporting spaces, woodwork and metalwork facilities, food and textile learning spaces and refurbishment of staff facilities.

Yandelora School is being constructed for students with a range of disabilities requiring intensive levels of support.

The new school will feature 16 technology-enabled classrooms with purpose-built amenities, a hydrotherapy pool, multi-purpose spaces for shared learning and special programs and modern administration and staff facilities.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said rebuilding schools in western Sydney will make a real difference to families and the quality of education for their children.

“These 13 upgrades are only part of the exciting projects program to build new schools or upgrade existing schools that are underway across NSW,” Mr Stokes said.
