Glenfield. Recommendations for ag. school

The State Government may be forced to spend almost $13.8 million improving facilities and increasing land size at Hurlstone Agricultural High School, at Glenfield, if it follows the recommendations of a report. The Sydney Morning Herald said the report recommended rebuilding and a land swap, under which 10.6 hectares would be sold for $15 million, and 30 hectares leased from the Department of Planning - increasing the school's size from 160 hectares to 180 hectares. Chairman of the inquiry, Mal Peters, said capital investment and changes to management and direction were required to realise the school's potential.
