Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced additional funding for the construction of a Community Performance Space at Barrenjoey High School.

The NSW Government has provided a further $174,000 towards the project, bringing the Government’s total contribution to $1.234 million.

The latest funding includes $124,000 under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants Program and a further $50,000 under the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund.

Earlier funding contributions included $1 million under the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund and $60,000 under the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program.

“This will be a fantastic addition to the school,” Rob Stokes said today.

“Barrenjoey High has an outstanding reputation in performing arts education and has produced some amazing talent.

“The performance space will provide the school community with an incredible asset to help promote and encourage future generations of performers.

“Barrenjoey’s P&C Association is passionate about seeing their vision for this project become a reality – so I’m delighted the NSW Government has been able to provide the funding boost it needs to see it delivered,” Rob Stokes said.
