The $8.8 million upgrade up Penshurst West Public School is now complete with seven new permanent classrooms and a new special programs room.

Ther project includes new tiered outdoor seating to enhance the open play space, a new sports equipment storeroom and new student toilets.

Oatley MP Mark Coure said all that remained was for work on the new carpark to be completed before the building is officially handed to the school community.

"The upgrades at the school will help students experience the benefits of flexible learning spaces in a new purpose-built environment," Mr Coure said.

"I know that the entire school community has been eagerly waiting to experience the new facilities and I am glad to that see students and teachers are now using them."

Sarah Mitchell, Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning, also welcomed the completion of the new school building, saying the NSW Government was working hard to deliver the school facilities that students and local communities deserve.

The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over four years to deliver 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW.

This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
