Chatswood Education Precinct

The information night held at Chatswood High School on 30 May was well represented by parents and students. The information slides displayed at the information night are available on the NSW Education Department - School Infrastructure website and show building footprint plans for the new Primary School and Middle School (yr 7-9) on the current High School site, and the Senior School (yr 10-12) on the current Primary School site.

Many questions were raised by attendees about the facilities that will be provided during building works AND the design of the proposed new buildings

The building designs are currently in progress. The SSDA (State Significant Development Application) is due to be released in the coming months.

We are concerned

  • that we have limited knowledge of the current plans, and that there will be little or no time to change anything once the SSDA is released
  • that the EFSG (Educational Facilities Standards and Guidelines) has been a restriction on the design team
  • about the staging of the development - particularly for HSC exams, the music program and anything else that requires the use of the hall
  • the proposed multi-purpose hall with no permanent stage will be a significant downgrade from our current facilities
  • about the future of the Music Studio (hall annex), organised by and partially paid by the P&C
  • about the proposed play spaces for the high school students
  • the proposed canteen and uniform shop spaces
