While South Coast MP Shelley Hancock may have been tearful during her celebration speech, after it was revealed she had won her set for the fifth consecutive election, she is ready to move forward.
As of Monday evening, Mrs Hancock had received 56.2 per cent first preference, a 3.7 per cent swing in her favour after the 2015 election.
The Coalition won an outright majority, picking up its 47th seat in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly on Monday.
Mrs Hancock now awaits the announcement of a reshuffled NSW Cabinet, but she said her first ports of call will be to the Roads, Health and Education Ministers.
"I don't know who is going to be the Education Minister, or any Minister, but the first thing of course is the [former] Shoalhaven Anglican School and to actually see where we are up to in terms of consultation," she said.
The state government has consulted all school principals in the district and needs to come up with a solution "as quickly as possible".
"We've got to find a resolution for what we're going to do at the school," she said.
"Otherwise, the year will go by pretty quickly and we'll still be in the same situation."

The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District will host a public meeting on Tuesday.
Mrs Hancock expected an update on issues with obstetrician recruitment. She said she did not want to see three years of campaigning go to waste.
"We're at a crossroads there, and I want to know from the Minister what we can do to increase the incentives, if we can, to make sure we get the maternity services back."
Similarly to the school site, Mrs Hancock does not want to see timelines pushed back on design work for the Milton-Ulladulla bypass.
"We have to start on that, the money is in the budget to start that," she said.
Community consultation, further property purchases and where the bypass rejoins the highway to the south also need to be resolved.
"Those are the issues of the southern Shoalhaven that we need to get on to very, very quickly."
