2022 Mortlake Public School Catchment Update

This one is a little strange actually, it will give up the portion of the catchment that is west of the Majors Bay Road to Strathfield North Public School in 2022. The area given up consists of part of Concord Hospital and Majors Bay Reserve, there are no residential properties located in the area, so there will not be zero effect on the enrolment number.

Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred to the Strathfield North Public School catchment from Mortlake Public School in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Concord West Public School Catchment Update

The changes to the Concord West Public School catchment for 2022 are fairly small. It consists of both sides of Moala Street to the southern edge of its existing catchment. I had a quick look, it appears about 50 to 55 detached dwellings, so the changes to total enrolment would be very minimal.

Please note the red-striped areas are what will be transferred to the Concord West Public School catchment from Strathfield North Public School. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Strathfield North Public School Catchment Update

Strathfield North Public School catchment for 2022 is undergoing a lot of changes. It both gained and lost a significant percentage of its existing catchment, I will detail the changes below.

Strathfield North Public school will transfer away both sides of Moala Street in the north to Concord West Public School in 2022. All the properties that I can see are low-density residential, so the affected enrolment number should be very minimal.

It will transfer the area north of Yarralla Street and west of Concord Road to Victoria Ave Public School in 2022. This area is a mix of low to medium residential properties.

It will gain the triangular area north of the motorway and west of the railway from Victoria Ave Public School in 2022. This area is a mix of low to medium residential properties.

It will also gain the area west of the Majors Bay Road from Mortlake Public School. However, this area is part of the Concord Hospital and Majors Bay Reserve, I do not see any residential properties in this area, so should have no effect on enrolment numbers for Strathfield North Public School in 2022.

Looking at all the gains and transfer away in the catchment for Strathfield North Public School for 2022, the overall effect on the enrolment number should be fairly neutral.

Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Strathfield North Public School to Victoria Ave and Concord West Public School in 2022. The red-striped areas are what will be transferred to the Strathfield North Public School catchment from Victoria Ave and Mortlake Public School. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Victoria Ave Public School Catchment Update

Victoria Ave Public School is a relatively new school that only opened in 2015. However, with a massive amount of high-density apartments built in the area recently, it is inevitable even the catchment of this recently opened school has to be changed again.

Victoria Ave Public School will pick up an area to the east between the railway and Concord Road and add to its existing catchment. This area mostly consists of low-density residential properties.

It will give up the entire southeast corner of its 2021 catchment to Homebush, Homebush West, and Strathfield North Public School in 2022. There is a healthy amount of medium to high-density residential properties located in the area that are being transferred away.

Looking at the catchment area gained and lost in 2022 for Victoria Ave Public School, it is safe to say its overall enrolment number will shrink very significantly.

Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Victoria Ave Public School to Homebush, Homebush West, and Strathfield North Public School in 2022. The red-striped areas are what will be transferred to the Victoria Ave Public School catchment from Strathfield North Public School. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Homebush West Public School Catchment Update

Homebush West Public School actually just completed a 30 million dollar expansion and renovation in 2019 which increased its classrooms from ten to thirty-six.

Homebush West Public School will expand its catchment to the east and add everything west of Airey Park to its 2022 catchment. This section is consists of medium to low-density residential buildings.

It will also add a section that is north of Parramatta Road and south of the motor to its 2022 catchment. This section mostly consists of commercial buildings with only a few residential houses.

Overall the expansion of the catchment in 2022 is not significant and should be handled well with its expanded capacity in 2019.

Please note the red-striped areas are what will be transferred to the Homebush West Public School catchment from Victoria Ave and Homebush Public School. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Homebush Public School Catchment Update

Very significant changes are happening to the catchment of Homebush Public School in 2022. Given the huge amount of large apartments that were built in recent years, it is not a real surprise to see this set of catchment changes. Homebush is not the same suburb that I use to frequent more than twenty years ago, the population density went up massively during the intervening years.

The southern edge of Homebush Public School’s existing catchment will be transferred to Marie Bashir Public School in 2022, this area purely consists of individual houses.

The western edge of its existing catchment will be transferred to Homebush West Public School. This area consists of a mix of medium to low-density dwellings.

It will be adding the area north of the Parramatta Road and south of the motorway to its 2022 catchment. There are a lot of recently built high-density apartment buildings.

Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Homebush Public School to Marie Bashir and Homebush West Public School in 2022. The red-striped areas are what will be transferred to the Homebush Public School catchment from Victoria Ave Public School. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Marie Bashir Public School Catchment Update

This is the 2022 updated catchment for Marie Bashir Public School. The changes are relatively minor, it gained a small section north of Arthur Street at the expense of the Homebush Public School.

I had a look at the catchment added in 2022 for Marie Bashir Public School, all the properties look like houses, so this change should not affect the total enrolment that much.

Please note the red-striped areas are what will be transferred to Marie Bashir Public School from Homebush Public School in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2021 NSW, Sydney School Reopening Plans

This information has been public for more than two weeks now. Now that we are less than two weeks from the spring holiday, it is a good time to look at the dates again.

The current NSW school reopening plan is a staggered one from the 25th of Oct to the 8th of November. Year 12 already has limited access to schools.

  • Kindergarten, year 1 and year 12: from 25 October
  • Year 2, 6 and 11: from 1 November
  • Year 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 and 10: from 8 November

There will be exceptions as usual, so any area that comes out of lockdown earlier than the 25th of Oct will be able to have their schools back to face-to-face learning as well.

The reverse is also true that if Covid cases exceed 50 per 100,000 people in any local government area, this will send the local schools back into lockdown.

Given the situation on the ground fluctuate significantly on a day-to-day basis, we can expect many possible changes to come. If the situation does not improve significantly in some areas, then it is possible for many students are not able to return to face-to-face learning for the rest of the year.

Given that this is the ninth week of online learning, for many students in Sydney, we are just over halfway with almost another seven weeks to go. I personally cannot wait for my kids to go back to face-to-face learning, surprisingly my elder one wanted to go back to school as well badly. The young one on the other hand is another story altogether.
