2022 Homebush West Public School Catchment Update

Homebush West Public School actually just completed a 30 million dollar expansion and renovation in 2019 which increased its classrooms from ten to thirty-six.

Homebush West Public School will expand its catchment to the east and add everything west of Airey Park to its 2022 catchment. This section is consists of medium to low-density residential buildings.

It will also add a section that is north of Parramatta Road and south of the motor to its 2022 catchment. This section mostly consists of commercial buildings with only a few residential houses.

Overall the expansion of the catchment in 2022 is not significant and should be handled well with its expanded capacity in 2019.

Please note the red-striped areas are what will be transferred to the Homebush West Public School catchment from Victoria Ave and Homebush Public School. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2022 Homebush Public School Catchment Update

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.

2022 Marie Bashir Public School Catchment Update

This is the 2022 updated catchment for Marie Bashir Public School. The changes are relatively minor, it gained a small section north of Arthur Street at the expense of the Homebush Public School.

I had a look at the catchment added in 2022 for Marie Bashir Public School, all the properties look like houses, so this change should not affect the total enrolment that much.

Please note the red-striped areas are what will be transferred to Marie Bashir Public School from Homebush Public School in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.

2021 NSW, Sydney School Reopening Plans

This information has been public for more than two weeks now. Now that we are less than two weeks from the spring holiday, it is a good time to look at the dates again.

The current NSW school reopening plan is a staggered one from the 25th of Oct to the 8th of November. Year 12 already has limited access to schools.

  • Kindergarten, year 1 and year 12: from 25 October
  • Year 2, 6 and 11: from 1 November
  • Year 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 and 10: from 8 November

There will be exceptions as usual, so any area that comes out of lockdown earlier than the 25th of Oct will be able to have their schools back to face-to-face learning as well.

The reverse is also true that if Covid cases exceed 50 per 100,000 people in any local government area, this will send the local schools back into lockdown.

Given the situation on the ground fluctuate significantly on a day-to-day basis, we can expect many possible changes to come. If the situation does not improve significantly in some areas, then it is possible for many students are not able to return to face-to-face learning for the rest of the year.

Given that this is the ninth week of online learning, for many students in Sydney, we are just over halfway with almost another seven weeks to go. I personally cannot wait for my kids to go back to face-to-face learning, surprisingly my elder one wanted to go back to school as well badly. The young one on the other hand is another story altogether.

2022 Kyeemagh Public School Catchment Update

Up to now, Kyeemagh Public School is an infant school that is only from kindergarten to year four. The expansion and upgrade of Kyeemagh Public School will be completed by end of this year. It will open its enrolment from kindergarten to year six. It will also no longer share catchment and overlap with the Arncliffe Public School in 2022.

With Kyeemagh Public School becoming a stand-alone public school like the other nearby schools. This basically resulted in pretty significant changes to many surrounding school catchments.

Most of its 2022 catchment is its existing shared one with Arncliffe Public School. In the northeastern corner of Rockdale Public School, about 45 houses are transferred to Kyeemagh Public School as well. Ramsgate Public School gave up a large part of its catchment in the north to Kyeemagh Public School in 2022.

Please note the green-striped areas are what now be exclusively catchment of Arncliffe Public School and instead of shared with Kyeemagh Public School in 2022.

2022 Rockdale Public School Catchment Update

Today, I will go over Rockdale Public School and changes to its catchment for 2022. The change in the 2022 catchment is very minor and it will only give up a tiny strip in the northeastern tip to Kyeemagh Public School.

This change is very very minor, I did a quick count on the map it is about 45 houses, so very few families will be impacted by this.

Please note the green-striped areas are what will be transferred away from Rockdale Public School to Kyeemagh Public School in 2022. The black border is the 2022 catchment boundary and the red is the 2021 boundary.
