The NSW Department of Education have announced plans for the redevelopment of Chatswood Public School and Chatswood High School. The new facilities will be known as the Chatswood Education Precinct.
All the primary classes of Chatswood Public School will move to the high school site in Centennial Avenue which they will share with high school classes 7 – 9. This will create a campus of some 2,700 students.
High school classes 10, 11 and 12 will move to the current Public School site on the Pacific Highway accommodating around 500 students.
This is estimated as a $20m project with new four-storey buildings across the two sites. This will include new classrooms, laboratories, libraries, canteen, multi-purpose hall and administration building.
It is reported that the development has been designed with the future in mind.
It would appear that the proposed changes would lessen the likelihood of convincing the Department of Education to purchase the building next to Chatswood Public School on the Pacific Highway for the expansion of that site.
Is a new school likely to be built on the Chatswood Dive site?
CWWPA, Willoughby Council and Willoughby District Historical Society have petitioned the State Government for a school on the site when the Metro is completed.
The Department of Education have published that the site is being considered for use as a school.
