TWT EXCLUSIVE on-the-spot PHOTO. Meadowbank TAFE will be transformed into the State’s first technology focused TAFE college together with a new K-12 school. Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Ryde MP Victor Dominello yesterday unveiled plans for the new education facilities which will include a new primary school, high school and a revitalised Meadowbank TAFE. “We are investing in a world class education precinct in Meadowbank to cater for the needs of students at a range of stages in their lives” the premier said. “The surrounding area is renowned as a leading technology hub and it makes sense to put technology front and centre of the revitalised TAFE site”, she said.
