The new school comprising 10 classrooms, a library, hall, canteen, special programs area, administration, staff facilities, toilets, games and assembly courts, a covered outdoor learning area, sports field, a car park, as well as landscaping.
“Recently I toured the construction site and like the rest of the community was really pleased to see the progress of the works.
“The classrooms are built, the framework and roof of the administration block, library and toilets are on, as is the hall,” Mrs Williams said.
“The next stage to be completed is the roof of the multi-sports centre which is currently underway.
“This is my second tour of the school sit in in a month and I am continually amazed at the pace of works being made,” Mrs Williams said.
“Joining me on the tour today was the new school Principal, Jock Garven.
“Apart from all of the construction work being carried out, there is a lot happening behind the scenes discussing planning schedules, exploring possibilities for school logos and school uniforms as well as establishing local parent committees.
“The other important matter being discussed is bus transport for school children which is vitally important.
“I know that Busways is in the process of finalising the bus timetable with a bus pass being made available to every student attending the new school regardless of where they live until there are safe pedestrian routes to the school,” Mrs Williams said.
Lake Cathie Public School will open on day one, Term One 2015.
