Today, I will go over Brookvale Public School and its new catchment for 2023. There was a recent upgrade with Brookvale Public School that was completed in November 2020 with an increase in teaching space and upgraded facilities.
Brookvale Public School will give up the portion of the catchment south of the Warringah Mall and either side of the Warringah golf course to Manly Vale Public School in 2023. This area is pretty big but consists of pretty much all single dwellings. This area is highlighted with green stripes in the south.
A small slice of the area south of Warringah Road consisting of around 40 houses will be transferred from Brookvale Public School to Narraweena Public School in 2023. This area is also highlighted with green stripes in the northern part of the Brookvale Public School catchment.
The big changes are in the northeast corner of the Brookvale Public School catchment. It gained the red striped area from Dee Why Public School and the yellow striped area from Curl Curl North Public School. The area picked up from Dee Why Public School is super high density and consists entirely of medium to high-density residential buildings. So this will have a pretty dramatic impact on the enrolment number of Brookvale Public School in 2023. The area gained from Curl Curl North Public School mainly consists of commercial buildings, so limited impact on enrolment.
Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Brookvale Public School to Manly Vale and Narraweena Public School in 2023. The red-striped area is what will be transferred to the Brookvale Public School from Dee Why schools in 2023. The yellow-striped area is what will be transferred to the Brookvale Public School from Curl curl North Public School. The black border is the 2023 catchment boundary and the red is the 2022 boundary.
I will further illustrate the density of residential buildings in the area that is transferred from Dee Why Public School to Brookvale Public School with the following Google Map image. If you look at the area from Street View, it is packed full of units and apartments.
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.
