The first stage of the Cronulla High School upgrade is now complete and will be ready for use on day 1 of term 1 2024.

I joined 2024 student leaders, Principal Tony Ibrahim and Deputy Principal Susan Geldart for a tour of the new “M Block” on the last school day of 2023.

The new building includes six advanced teaching spaces, new staff common room, other new staff facilities, modern student restrooms, and a new canteen.

Senior students will enjoy start of the art learning spaces from the start of 2024. I thank Tony Ibrahim and the school P&C for their input during the design phase and the entire school community for its enthusiasm and patience.

The previous Liberal Government announced an extensive upgrade of Cronulla High School in 2019. Construction began earlier this year.

The remainder of the upgrades will be completed progressively in 2024 and 2025.  These include another new building (“L Block”) (bringing the number of new teaching spaces to ten, plus additional core facilities), renovation of some existing buildings, new covered walkways and a major extension of the school hall.
