Students and teachers at Allambie Heights Public School will soon benefit from a brand new air ventilation system covering 19 classrooms and 2 libraries with construction now underway for the delivery of its new system.

Member for Wakehurst, Brad Hazzard welcomed the news that the Cooler Classrooms Program would soon be delivered.

“It’s so important that students can learn in comfortable environments. That’s why I’m delighted that construction is now underway for the installation of the new air ventilation system at Allambie Heights Public School.”

“I look forward to when the students and teachers can enjoy cooler, better quality air in their classrooms and libraries,” Mr Hazzard said.

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the project at Allambie Heights Public School was part of the NSW Government’s $500 million five-year Cooler Classrooms Program.

“The program is continuing to provide optimal teaching and learning environments for students and teachers in public schools across NSW,” Ms Mitchell said.

As well as cooling, the systems deliver fresh outside air, incorporate smart controls to ensure they operate efficiently, and where feasible, will be solar powered to reduce the financial and environmental impact of running the systems.

The Cooler Classrooms Program is a $500 million, five-year investment by the NSW Government to improve learning environments in public schools across NSW.

The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
