This exchange of catchment with the St Ives High School makes a lot of sense, now both school has contiguous catchment area in 2024.
The green-stripped area will be transferred from St Ives High School to the Ku-ring-gai High School catchment in 2024. This area is very significant in size, but it is overlayed with Asquith Boys and Girls High School.
The yellow-stripped area will be transferred from Turramurra High School to Ku-ring-gai High School in 2024. This area is very densely populated but again it is a shared catchment with Asquith Boys and Girls High School, so the overall impact should not be that dramatic.
The red-striped area will be transferred from Ku-ring-gai High School to St Ives High School in 2024.
The blue-striped area is being transferred from Ku-ring-gai High School to Turramurra High School in 2024, this area is very small.
Overall I think the total impact on the enrolment should be fairly neutral on a surface inspection. However, I do not know either school intimately, so this speculation could be well off the mark.
The black border is the 2024 catchment boundary and the red is the 2023 boundary.
The most common name used by the NSW Department of Education is “catchment” which refers to those students who reside in a particular area and 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.
