As development spreads around the Hawkesbury boarders, a new primary school has been announced at Rouse Hill.
Dubbed 'Rouse Farm', the location for the site, near Tallawong Metro Station, was announced this week by Education Minister Sarah Mitchell and Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly.
A Development Application (DA) has been lodged to start early works on the site, at 91 Schofields Road in Rouse Hill.
Mr Conolly said he was delighted that plans were progressing for the new primary school, which will be a modular build construction like that currently being built at Farmland Drive in Schofields.
"The new primary school will create a high quality facility for students for years to come and support current population projections," Mr Connolly said.
Though the site is located in the suburb of Rouse Hill, it will be referred to by the working title of Rouse Farm pending the normal naming process for new schools.
"It has been a big week for Riverstone communities with construction starting at the new primary school in Schofields and in Marsden Park as well. And we've had an additional three school upgrades delivered in the last seven months," Mr Conolly said.
Minister Mitchell said the new Rouse Farm primary school would benefit the growing community by providing new permanent learning spaces and modern educational facilities for the future.
"This is exciting for the entire community, which includes young families who have chosen to make this part of Sydney their home," Ms Mitchell said.
"This is one of the fastest growing areas in the state. This government is supporting these growing communities with investments into jobs, roads and public transport as well as social infrastructure, including schools, parks and community facilities."
