Plans for a major upgrade of Cronulla High School have reached a key milestone with the call going out for construction tenders.

The project will see the construction of 10 modern new learning spaces, a new canteen, new administration areas and upgraded student and staff amenities.

I am delighted to see progress on this major upgrade of Cronulla High, which is essential to meet the needs of the growing school community.

Just over the school’s back fence are hundreds of new homes of local children and we are working to provide the capacity to help ensure Cronulla High continues to provide quality education for the area’s families.

This upgrade will provide Cronulla High staff and students with modern facilities and an inspiring learning space for the future.

Construction is due to start in 2023 following completion of the final designs. The Department of Education is interested to hear from the school and local community about what is important to them as the project enters the final design stages.

An online survey will open between Monday 5 September and Friday 16 September for people to have their say about how they currently use the Cronulla High School facilities, and to share what aspects of building design are most important. More information and the survey (when open) are available here.

I encourage the community to take the opportunity from 5 September to provide feedback to the project team so the final design best caters for the needs of staff and students.
