    "At the 2021 State election I committed $2 million towards a kindergarten and pre-primary building at Illawarra Primary School - I am so pleased to see planning is already underway.


    "This is an important milestone for the latest upgrades to Illawarra Primary School, which are part of the McGowan Government's ongoing work to improve infrastructure of local schools.
