There are two public schools within West Ward – Chatswood and Mowbray. Every child is entitled to be enrolled in a public school.
Schools have what is known as an ‘enrolment area’ (refer to the map of Chatswood PS enrolment area on the left). You are entitled to attend the school if your home is within the specified enrolment area. If the school is full, demountables will be used to cater for increased enrolments.
The catchment for Mowbray PS is shown on the right. Please note that these catchments may change. So be sure to consult the school or its website directly about enrolment entitlement.
Mowbray Public School has recently been expanded from a few hundred students to cater for up to 1,000 students. New enrolments at the school are largely coming from the new units on the Lane Cove Council side of Mowbray Rd. There have been gossip that the enrolment area boundary between Chatswood PS and Mowbray PS might change at some point. So again, refer directly to the school for enrolment advice.
This entry on school enrolments has been established to monitor any changes to school enrolment areas. The information in this article should not be relied on in determining your enrolment entitlement.
