ANZAC PARK PUBLIC SCHOOL MEETS STUDENT DEMAND

Enrolment applications for 2017 are now open for students from Kindergarten to Year 6 at Anzac Park Public School, which will cater for 1,000 students to help meet the strong demand for public education in northern Sydney. Minister for Education Adrian Piccoli and Member for Willoughby Gladys Berejiklian today officially opened the $30 million school and toured the facilities.

“This school term 77 Kindergarten students have made themselves at home in the state-of-the-art classrooms with 120 students already enrolled for 2017 and strong interest expressed across the remaining years,” Mr Piccoli said. “The school design maximises the learning spaces, the classrooms are world-class and there is plenty of play space. I congratulate the architects on their work.”

Ms Berejiklian said the school, built on the former ANZAC Memorial Club, was a welcome addition to the many outstanding public schools on the lower North Shore. “This is one of the fastest growing areas of Sydney, so it is crucial that we have a new school that not only recognises the heritage of the site but will also grow with the local community,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“I thank the community for their keen involvement in the process. Parents and locals provided input throughout the planning and building process to the school’s name, logo, motto and uniform.” In just over five years, the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has funded 32 new or relocated public schools and committed almost $4.9 billion to school infrastructure and maintenance.
