Stage two – which is the demolition of building C – began on Monday and is expected to take approximately six weeks, finishing at the end of August 2023 Ms Wilson said.
“Once the demolition works for building C are complete, we can expect to see remediation and final landscaping works taking place before this project is completed later this year.

State Government figures show schools across the northern Sydney region will require facilities for 21,900 additional students over the next 15 years.
Senior Project Director Daniel Herbertson said the objective of the Mosman High expansion is to transform the campus into a “Stream 9” capacity school of 1500 students, to meet growth demands by 2031.
In a submission to the NSW Department of Planning last year, Mr Herbertson said the school had been “undersized and in poor condition,”.
“The current number of teaching spaces will not sustain future enrolment growth and limited teaching spaces at the school inhibits opportunities for student learning,” he said at the time.
“Mosman High School is also severely restricted in student outdoor space. The current average of outdoor play space per student is 5.5 metres squared, in comparison to the Chatswood Secondary School cluster average of 16 metres squared.”

Ms Wilson said the new facility delivers on the former Government’s commitment to “bring local students the latest facilities and support the growing school community.”
“Locally there is a strong demand to attend Mosman High, known for its creative skills development, academic rigour, and culture of inclusion,” Ms Wilson said.
“We worked closely with the school on this project collaboratively, to ensure that we get the design right for the school and local residents,” Ms Wilson said.
