Today, I will go over Cromer Public School and its new catchment for 2023. It has given up two very small slices of its existing catchment on the south side to the Narraweena Public School in 2023. It will pick up a sizable area on the east side from the existing catchment of Dee Why Public School in 2023.
All the areas being transferred away and into the Cromer Public School is low-density single dwellings. There are a few medium-density units in the area, but no big impact on the enrolment numbers in a significant fashion. Most of the area transferred from Dee Why Public School consists of the industry area, so despite the sizable area transferred to Cromer Public School in 2023, the number of dwellings involved is fairly limited.
Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Cromer Public School to Narraweena Public School in 2023. The red-striped areas are what will be transferred to the Cromer Public School from Dee Why Public School in 2023. 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.
