Increase permanent accommodation at Randwick Public School

This petition made change with 94 supporters!


Randwick Public School is exceedingly over capacity at 844 children this year.

For most of our school community, they returned to the new school year to discover that their prized basketball courts had been replaced by 4 large demountable classrooms.  This has caught the whole school community by surprise.   It has significantly reduced open play space for children, thus increasing the strain on other spaces at recess and lunch time.

Even more concerning is that the demountable expansion is set to continue, given the forecast growth of the school population over the next few years.  Randwick Public School has grown from 765 students in 2013 to 804 in 2014 and now to 844 students this year.  The school is forecasting that “in area” enrolments will soar to 1000 students by 2018. 

There is, however, an obvious solution and we are fortunate to have it on our doorstep.  The distance education provided by the Open High School adjoining our site does not support a local student population and can be run from any number of locations. We believe that this site offers both the most timely and economic option to accommodate the student growth at Randwick Public School.
