The rebuilding of Mowbray School to accommodate up to 1,000 (up from the 300 at present) is progressing. The majority of residents and members of the school community are happy with the plans that ensure that the playground and oval will not be built on. This plan requires the demolition of the relatively new Library (rebuilt after a fire). However, in its place will be a bigger and arguably better library.
the Daily Telegraph recently ran a negative headline about the school “$1m down the drain as library flattened”. However, article also articulates the background, reasoning and community support for this important project.
