The Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct Schools Project will involve the relocation of Meadowbank Public School and Marsden High School to the old site of the northern wing of the TAFE NSW Meadowbank campus.
The demolition works of the old TAFE facilities have made way for the construction of a revitalised Meadowbank TAFE facility, with a focus on technology to be executed through a new Multi-Trades and Digital Technology Hub. These new facilities will comprise a multilevel, multi-purpose building.
In addition to the delivery of new primary and high school facilities, the project will see increased connectivity to major tranpsort hubs through improved access to the railway station, and provide new flexible learning spaces. It is expected that the project will cater for 1,000 primary school students, 1,500 secondary school students and a further 120 Intensive English Centre students.
Contracts for the new schools and TAFE buildings will be procured separately.
