The state government has unveiled plans for a new multipurpose hall at Engadine High School.

State MP for Heathcote Lee Evans said plans were forging ahead for the new hall and he was excited to share the first glimpse of what it will look like.

"I'm proud that the NSW Government is delivering on the election promise to upgrade the school hall at Engadine High School," he said.

"The new multipurpose hall will provide modern new facilities, including a full basketball court and storage rooms."

Mr Evans said it had been "fantastic to work alongside the principal through the design process".

"I am thrilled to see how this new project will benefit the school and the local community for years to come," he said.

NSW Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said she was proud that the government's 'halls program' would benefit more than 6000 public school students.

"School halls are the natural gathering point for students and staff, and they can also be a vital part of a thriving local community," she said.

"As part of the planning process for some of the halls, the Department of Education will look at opportunities for community use as well as the possibility of sharing some of the facilities with neighbouring schools in the area."

Current planning for halls includes developing a master plan and concept design, which will be shared with local communities as projects progress.

The Department of Education is working to complete the detailed hall designs and initiate a tender process before the end of this year, with construction scheduled to start across all projects early next year.

The government is investing $6.7 billion over four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. The government says it is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the NSW's history.
