Students with disability in the South Western Sydney region are the winners from a $89 million investment by the NSW Government in three schools for specific purposes.
Education minister Sarah Mitchell earlier today visited the new Yandelora School located in Richardson Road, Narellan (pictured above and below) and also checked out the construction site of Passfield Park School in Minto.
Yandelora School is a $21.8 million dollar purpose built school providing specialised educational setting for students with moderate to severe disabilities since 2019.
Ms Mitchell said the schools are catering to a growing community and their specific needs.
“The facilities at these schools are specialised and world class. They will change lives,” Ms Mitchell said.
“I have seen first hand the difference a purpose built school can make.
“It helps teachers deliver quality education and helps students gain independence both at school and for their future endeavours.
“The NSW Government is investing in facilities like we see at Yandelora School to ensure every child in NSW has the opportunity to flourish at school, no matter their circumstances.”
Member for Camden, Peter Sidgreaves joined the minister during her visit today.
“I am proud that the NSW Government has delivered Yandelora School for our community, and it’s great to have the minister officially open it,” Mr Sidgeaves said.
Ms Mitchell and Mr Sidgreaves also visited the construction site of the new Passfield Park School in Minto.
The multi-million dollar investment will deliver 16 new permanent learning spaces within four hubs, a library, play areas, sensory gardens, landscaping and an indoor sports facility including a hydrotherapy pool.
Ms Mitchell also announced that the relocation of Mainsbridge School in Liverpool to purpose built facilities at Warwick Farm Public School has been completed, with doors opening to students on the first day of term two.
“These three new schools are part of the NSW Government’s historic school building program,” Ms Mitchell said.
