2022 Chatswood Public School Catchment Update

I actually would have expected many of these changes a lot sooner. Department of Education must have been waiting for the full establishment of the catchment for Lindfield Learning Village before changing the catchment of nearby schools.

Anybody who had been to Chatswood Public School recently would have a good understanding of how crowded it is. I have also predicated catchment changes will be happening, so most of the changes should not be a surprise to most people watching this field and expected.

Please also note these changes will apply in 2022 onwards.

The entire northwestern corner of the current Chatswood Public School catchment will be transferred to Lindfield Learning Village in 2022.

The southern edge of the current Chatswood Public School catchment that is south of Chatswood Gulf Club and Ferndale Park will be also transferred to Mowbray Public School.

The northeastern corner of the current Chatswood Public School catchment will be split into two segments, the eastern portion that is east of Havilah street will be transferred to Roseville Public School. The western portion of that will be transferred to Lindfield Learning Village as well.

Black is the border of the 2022 catchment and the red line is the border for the 2021 catchment boundary.

Changes To 2021 Selective High School Entrance Examination

Significant changes to score composition has been made. Previously half of the score comes from the school mark. In 2021, moderated school assessment score only make up 20 out of 120, which is one-sixth of the total score.

Reading is 25 out of 120, Mathematical reasoning is 25 out of 120, Thinking skills is 35 out of 120 and Writing is 15 out of 120, then plus the 20 from the moderated school assessment, it makes the total score of 120.

Basically thinking skills and writing gains more weight at expense of the Math. These changes should benefit girls a little more. Reduction of the makeup of the moderated school assessment score from half to one-sixth should also make the result more reliable and less disputed.

The questions are completely revamped as well, so 2021 will be a very interesting year for selective high school entry.
