Around 1,000 students in Sydney’s North West will attend the newly named Northbourne Public School from 2021 with the new school welcoming students at its temporary facilities early next year.
Located in the Elara estate on Northbourne Drive in Marsden Park, Northbourne Public School will cater for 1,000 students from year K-6. It will provide innovative learning environments including flexible learning spaces, a hall, a library and a covered outdoor learning area as well as staff and administration facilities.
Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning Sarah Mitchell said she was thrilled to be able to give the highly anticipated new school a name.
“Northbourne Public School will offer brand new modern facilities to improve educational outcomes and help students develop skills and knowledge in an exciting new and sophisticated environment,” Ms Mitchell said.
“The innovative learning spaces at Northbourne Public School will be flexible. This means teachers will be able to design a wide range of tailored activities and lessons, allowing students to learn in the way most suited to their needs,” Ms Mitchell said.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly said he was delighted to welcome a new school to the region.
“The arrival of a new school is an exciting time for the residents of Marsden Park,” Mr Conolly said.
“Parents in that part of Marsden Park will be able to send their children to a brand new school in their local area. I am looking forward to day 1 next year when Northbourne Public School is ready to welcome students.”
Northbourne Public School will open as a temporary facility in early 2021. The permanent facilities are forecast to be completed later in 2021. Site plans and early designs are available online at:
