Bathurst's MacKillop College has been granted more than $2 million by the state government towards a major expansion program.
The school has been granted $2.27 million towards the construction of six new contemporary learning spaces and additional staff facilities.
College principal Steve Muller said enrolments at the school were growing and the school needed more space to accommodate the students.
"With enrolments predicted to reach more than 700 in 2022, the new learning spaces will be a welcome addition to the college, allowing us to continue to provide quality Catholic education with state-of-the-art facilities. It's exciting times," he said.
