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.
The most common name used by the NSW Department of Education is called “catchment” which refers to those students who reside in a particular area who are guaranteed a position in specific schools. When discussed from the perspective of a particular school is often referred to as one of the following terms.
- School Zone
- School intake area
- School catchment
As usual contact the school in question or the Department of Education for the final confirmation and you can also access the full NSW and Sydney Primary School Catchment Map by following this link.
