When the State Budget is handed down next week it will include money to finish planning and start building a new primary school for the growing population in South Nowra and Worrigee.

South Coast MP Shelley Hancock said a site for the new school had been chosen, the planning was well progressed, and once it was complete the construction would start straight away.

“The new South Nowra / Worrigee Primary School will be an incredible asset for the community with high-quality education facilities for students and teachers.

“I am pleased we are progressing the delivery of this new primary school, and I’m looking forward to working with the community over the coming months as we see construction commence on the project,” Mrs Hancock said.

The new South Nowra / Worrigee school is part of a $2.1 billion 2021-22 budget allocation, including funding to deliver 44 new and upgraded schools.
