St Matthews Catholic School Mudgee – Secondary Campus
Construction is due to commence on the site of the new St Matthews Catholic School – Secondary Campus, on 15th March 2021 and aims to be completed for the commencement of the new school year in 2023.
This will see an investment of more than $33 million in the local Mudgee community, entirely funded by the Catholic Diocese of Bathurst.
The new secondary campus will cater for up to 680 students from year 7 to year 12 and provide 59 full time equivalent jobs.
The Diocese has partnered with North Construction & Building to build the new campus, which is set to span nine hectares and includes a chapel, sporting capacities, multipurpose hall, state-of-the-art music and drama facilities, purpose-built spaces for vocational education and training and dedicated hospitality rooms with café facilities.
The new campus will provide a flexible and unique learning environment with an opportunity to expand current subjects such as primary industries, agriculture and construction.
The development of the campus is required due to the current Kindergarten to Year 12 School outgrowing the site at Lewis St, Mudgee. The Secondary Campus will see the transfer of existing students from Year 7 to Year 12 to the new campus while the Kindergarten to Year 6 students will remain at the existing school.
The construction phase of the project will provide employment opportunities of up to 150 jobs on site through local and regional procurement strategies. The project has the potential of injecting millions of dollars into the regional economy.
