Chatswood Education Precinct - Proposal for redevelopment of high school

You may be aware the State Government has committed over $4 billion to upgrade public schools in NSW over the next 4 years. The redevelopment of Chatswood Public School has already been announced by the NSW Government.

In March 2018 School Infrastructure NSW, part of the NSW Department of Education, confirmed to the CHS P&C that planning is underway to investigate an option to redevelop Chatswood school (covering both public and high) infrastructure to meet anticipated future growth. The Department is in the process of finalising the proposal and expects to commence public engagement with school communities by mid-year assuming these plans are approved by NSW Treasury.

The CHS P&C are greatly encouraged by the inclusion of the high school in the much needed plans to redevelop the Chatswood Education Precinct. P&Cs from both public and high schools are collaborating closely on this matter.

Like our neighbouring public school, the high school also suffers from outdated facilities and overcrowding. Chatswood High School now has 11 demountable classrooms on-site to accommodate the growth in the number of high school students. This total swells to over 30 demountable classrooms when the Intensive English Centre and the Public School’s Bush Campus are included.

To support the future learning needs of our high school, students and teachers deserve new specialist facilities. Over recent years there has been a stop/start approach to upgrading Chatswood school facilities, so we are encouraged by a longer term and whole of precinct approach to provide learning spaces and facilities in this proposed redevelopment of both schools.
.
We welcome the use of a Project Reference Group which includes Principals and P&C representatives from both schools. We also look forward to widespread community consultation on this much needed redevelopment commencing as soon as possible.
Our Regional Director of public schools Ms Sue Low welcomes any queries you may have on this proposal. She has kindly provided the following email address - .

We ask for your positive support to encourage this important development proposal.

    Volunteers Wanted

    Volunteering in the uniform shop is a great way to get to know the school and community. You will get to know our group of friendly and dedicated volunteers. It is not all work as we get together twice a year for social events, usually to try out multi cultural food and cuisine that the volunteers made from home. You may take a look at "What we do" at the uniform shop events. Come in and we'd love you to join our big uniform shop family.

  • What is the Parent Network?

    The parent network co-ordinators for each year group maintain a list of contact details of all interested parents in their year group. This list is circulated to those on the list, enabling parents to be able to contact other parents in their child's year.

     

    The parent network co-ordinators may organise social events during the year, send information emails, and ask for help at certain school functions.

     

    How do I join?

    Fill in your details or email your network co-ordinator or fill in a hardcopy form that is available at the school office.

  • Would you like to get more involved but not sure where you fit?

    The P&C has a variety of functions and there are many opportunities to get involved: view the list of roles within the P&C.

    For further information about any of these roles, please contact the President  or the Secretary .

     

    Uniform Shop Volunteers

    Volunteer in the uniform shop on a regular basis.

    Please note that a Working With Children Check (WWCC) is required for all volunteers. See more on our info sheet.

    Apply online for your WWCC - its free and can be used for other organisations that require it from you.

     

    Committee Members

    Come along to the general P&C meeting - there are 2 meetings each term on either a Tuesday or Thursday night.

    Join one of the P&C committees - uniform, fundraising, building - and have a say in how things are run.

     

    Parent Representative on Teacher Interview Panel

    Would you like to represent the parent body on teacher interview panels as required? There is a small amount of training to do first.

  • The P&C supports the school with specific projects and events where the school cannot afford the cost, but these projects can only go ahead if the P&C can afford it.

     

    Parent Contributions

    While funding is sought via grants and sponsorship for specific projects where appropriate, parents are asked to contribute to the P&C to enable these projects to continue. Suggested contribution amounts are:

    Building Fund (Tax Deductible): $150 per student

    General Fund: $90 per student

     

    Contributions can be made with your school fees.

  • The P&C has gathered resources from various speakers and these are available for parents - please see the Parent Resource page.
