Speculation Of Primary Catchment For The New Primary School At St Leonards Education Precinct

The site of the new proposed St Leonards Education Precinct from all the information I went through will most likely be where currently TAFE located next to the Royal North Shore Hospital. I marked the spot on the image below, so your guys can have a better understanding of its location and relation to the nearby schools.

There are a large number of residential towers already went up and in the process of doing so around the St Leonards Station. It makes sense to situate a new school near where the population growth will be happening in the near future.

Looking at the location, the catchment of primary school sited at St Lenoards Education Precinct will likely be at the expanse of Greenwich, Artarmon, and Anzac Park Public School. However, when a new school is established, usually schools on the outer ring of it will also be impacted. So Lane Cove, North Sydney, and Cammeray Public School will also likely be impacted to a lesser degree. Chatswood and Mowbray Public School will not likely be impacted by this new school as a different new primary school will be established in Chatswood.

We still at the planning stage, so many things can and will change over the next few years.

Speculation Of Primary Catchment For The New Primary School At Macquarie Park Education Precinct

Looking at the proposed location of the new Macquarie Park Education Precinct and the catchment of existing nearby primary schools, we can start to speculate the possible catchment for the new primary school.

Given that the NSW Department of Education likes to conform to the major separating features like rivers, parks, and major roads, this means it most likely will be the area bounded by Lane Cove river and Epping Road.

The most likely impacted schools are North Ryde and Truscott Street Public School. Kent Road Public School is also likely affected as well. Changes to catchment of these existing catchment will also likely resulting in changes to the other neighbouring public schools to the south as well.

There is a massive amount of newly build large apartment buildings around the Macquarie shopping center, so a new school is sorely needed.

Newly Proposed Public School In Chatswood

Given the recent large scale development in Chatswood, it is not a surprise that a new public school will be build in the area. One important thing to note is that in 2022 significant part of existing Chatswood Public School’s catchment will be handed to Lindfield Learning Village and Roseville Public School.

Currently, it is speculated that the new public school will be sited at dive site for Sydney Metro located at the corner of Pacific high way and Mowbray road. You can look at the 2021 catchment map and see the proposed site marked by X.

Looking at the site, this likely means further reduction of the catchment of the existing Chatswood Public School catchment, possibly extend to Mowbray, Artarmon, and nearby Willoughby Public School as well. These three schools all received recent upgrades, so they are probably not under immediate heavy enrolment pressure. I would guess most of the catchment of this new school will come from the existing Chatswood Public School’s catchment.

However, this will imply very significant changes to the catchment when the new school is established. Given the current timeline, it will be a few more years at least.

2022 Killara High School Catchment Map Update

Killara High School catchment actually will expand fairly significantly in 2022. The area around the Lindfield railway station that is currently part of Chatswood High School catchment will be transferred to Killara High School.

This area actually got a lot of medium to high-density buildings, so the population density is pretty high. I am actually a little surprised this particular transfer happened due to the historical enrolment pressure on the Killara High School.

I did visit Killara High School a couple of times in the last few years, it has pretty good facilities for public school standard. All the ones I have seen and being inside are fairly modern and in good condition. I only saw a couple of demountable classrooms which are a pretty common sight in many other NSW schools.

Please note the red-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Chatswood High School to Killara High School in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

Chatswood High School same as Chatswood Public School is the focus of the changes due to the official release of the Lindfield Learning Village catchment for 2022.

The northern tip of the existing Chatswood High School catchment will be transferred to Killara High School in 2022.

The rest of the northern section of the existing Chatswood High School catchment will be transferred to Lindfield Learning Village in 2022 as well.

A very tiny catchment area that is sandwiched between Sailors Bay Road and Flat Rock Drive of existing Chatswood High School will be transferred to Cammeraygal High School in 2022.

Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Chatswood High School to other nearby high schools in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Killara Public School Catchment Map Update

When I went to the Killara Public School a couple of years back, it was still full of demountable classrooms. It has recently received a much-needed school upgrade. Unfortunately, I had not been back recently to see the completed upgrades.

I actually did not expect the catchment area for Killara Public School to shrink so much for 2022. The entire area of its existing catchment area east of the railway got transferred to Lindfield East Public School.

Another section west of the railway of the existing catchment is transferred from Killara Public School to Lindfield Public School in 2022.

Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Killara Public School to other nearby public schools in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Lindfield East Public School Catchment Map Update

I was actually a little surprised that Lindfield East Public School’s catchment was expanded in a non-insignificant fashion in 2022. The nearby Killara Public School must be under fairly seriously enrolment number pressure even after the recently received school upgrade.

The current Killara Public School’s catchment east of the railway will be transferred to Lindfield East Public School in 2022.

Lindfield Public School’s current catchment’s eastern edge will also be transferred to Lindfield East Public School in 2022.

As previously mentioned in the previous update, Roseville Public School will receive the southern edge of the current Lindfield East Public School in 2022.

Please note the red-striped areas are what will be transferred to Lindfield East Public School in 2022, green striped areas are what will be transferred away to other nearby public schools in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Lindfield Public School Catchment Map Update

In this round of changes, Lindfield Public School is the one that had the most significant changes to its catchment. It was previously very crowded and these changes are sorely needed.

The entire southern section of the Lindfield Public School catchment will be transferred to Lindfield Learning village in 2022.

A very small section of the northwestern corner of the existing Roseville Public School’s catchment will be transferred to Lindfield Public School in 2022.

Lindfield East Public School will take over a fair bit of the eastern segment of the catchment from Lindfield Public School in 2022.

Lindfield Public School will also take over the southeast corner of what use to the catchment of the Killara Public School in 2022 as well.

Please note the red-striped areas are what will be transferred to Lindfield Public School in 2022, green striped areas are what will be transferred away to other nearby public schools in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Mowbray Public School Catchment Map Update

The expansion and upgrade of Mowbray Public School were completed a couple of years ago. All the old demountable classrooms got removed and replaced with a very large brand new multi-story building. I previously speculated possible changes to the catchment and what is coming in 2022 closely matched that.

Basically, the southern edges of what was previously part of Chatswood Public School got transferred to Mowbray Public School in 2022.

2022 Chatswood Public School Catchment Update

I actually would have expected many of these changes a lot sooner. Department of Education must have been waiting for the full establishment of the catchment for Lindfield Learning Village before changing the catchment of nearby schools.

Anybody who had been to Chatswood Public School recently would have a good understanding of how crowded it is. I have also predicated catchment changes will be happening, so most of the changes should not be a surprise to most people watching this field and expected.

Please also note these changes will apply in 2022 onwards.

The entire northwestern corner of the current Chatswood Public School catchment will be transferred to Lindfield Learning Village in 2022.

The southern edge of the current Chatswood Public School catchment that is south of Chatswood Gulf Club and Ferndale Park will be also transferred to Mowbray Public School.

The northeastern corner of the current Chatswood Public School catchment will be split into two segments, the eastern portion that is east of Havilah street will be transferred to Roseville Public School. The western portion of that will be transferred to Lindfield Learning Village as well.

Black is the border of the 2022 catchment and the red line is the border for the 2021 catchment boundary.
