Goulburn MP Wendy Tuckerman visited the site of the new Murrumbateman Primary School today to officially mark the start of construction, introduce the newly appointed headmaster and officially name the school.
“I am delighted to announce that the new primary school will be called Murrumbateman Public School and will offer brand new facilities to meet the growing needs of students and the community,” Ms Tuckerman said.
The new school will accommodate up to 370 students and includes flexible learning spaces, a library, hall, canteen, special education learning unit and covered outdoor learning area.
Ms Tuckerman said she was proud to turn the first shovel to mark the start of construction and was delighted to see the project moving forward.
“Murrumbateman Public School will be an exciting addition to the community and provide modern resources to local students now and for generations to come,” she said.
“I am also pleased to announce that the Principal of Murrumbateman Public School will be Liz Beasley.

“She understands the importance of providing a learning environment where all members of the school community are valued and have a say in shaping the school culture,”
Ms Beasley said she was thrilled to be part of creating a school and culture that epitomizes the Murrumbateman community.
