I have done two articles on Willoughby Public School previously introducing the school and discuss its expansion plan. You can find both below.
I have recently visited the school again and walked around to take some photos of the expansion in progress for both Willoughby Public School and Willoughby Girls High School. Looking at the progress, it should be ready next year or first half for sure. Both schools were previously fully stuffed with all types of demountable classrooms, so it was really nice to see the expansion happening and on track.
The first photo is the view of the school from the front gate, it is a good mix of the old and new.
Following image shows the main expansion building for the Willoughby Public School, as you can see it is progressed pretty far already and should not be too long before it is ready.
Next shows the massive amount of new demountable classrooms brought in to hold over, I lost count but it is around 30. These are shared with Willoughby Girls High School, so not all are only used by the Willoughby Public School.
Rest of the school are more or less the same as before and you can see photos of them from my previous article entry. I am also putting two photos of Willoughby Girls High School here as this is considered as one expansion plan and carried out at same time.
First is the main expansion building for the neighouring Willoughby Girls High School. It takes place on what use to be the tennis court. Demonstration of how tight the space got in some Sydney school, the tennis court where the construction now taken place was taken over by demountable classrooms already. The last photo was where some demountable classrooms use to sit and now a construction site and looks like so far mostly used for storage of material and equipments.
This is certainly exciting times and I look forward to see the expansion when it finishes.
As usual, contact the school in question or Department of Education for the final confirmation and you can also access the full NSW and Sydney Public School Catchment Map by following this link.
