Today, I will go over the catchment for the new Epping South Public School which is scheduled to open for all year range in 2023. This will impact the catchments of surrounding public schools dramatically.
The existing impacted most is the popular Epping West Public School which will see roughly about half of its southern catchment transferred to the new Epping South Public School. This area is shown in the red strip below. Epping West Public School is highly sought after by many parents, so this change will have a significant impact in the coming year likely on property values as well.
The black striped area which is the northern edge of the existing Eastwood Public School will be transferred to the new Epping South Public School in 2023. Eastwood Public School is another popular public school in the year which already saw a recent shrinking catchment due to the opening of the Smalls Road Public School. This one can have a possible impact on the property price in the area as well.
The yellow striped area which is mainly the southeast corner of the existing Carlingford Public School will be transferred to the new Epping South Public School in 2023.
Please note the black border is the 2023 catchment boundary and the red is the 2022 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.
