New Primary School in Gregory Hills to Open Next Year
The opening of the new primary school in Gregory Hills has been brought forward, with the school now scheduled to be ready for Day 1 Term 1 2023.
The NSW Government is delivering a new primary school for the Gregory Hills community to support the growing area and meet local enrolment demand. Temporary facilities will be established to accommodate students and staff, as work to deliver the multi-million dollar school continues.
The temporary school will be built within the site of the new primary school in Gregory Hills on Gregory Hills Drive (surrounded by Wallarah Circuit and Long Reef Circuit), subject to planning approval.
Member for Camden Peter Sidgreaves said he was pleased that the new school will open its doors sooner than initially anticipated.
“I’m excited that we will have a new, operational school for the community of Gregory Hills from the start of 2023. It is great news for local families,” Mr Sidgreaves said.
“Parents will shortly be invited to start enrolling their children for 2023, from Kindergarten to Year 6.
“I would like to thank the community for their continued interest, commitment and strong advocacy”.
The Department of Education will use a provisional intake area for the new school which will allow parents to enrol their children for the start of Term 1 2023.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said that the Department of Education would share more information about the new school and how to enrol in the coming weeks.
“We have appointed an acting Principal to begin preparations for the new school while recruitment for a Principal and staff progresses later in Term 3,” Ms Mitchell said.
“The school’s name, uniform and logo will be developed in consultation with the Gregory Hills community”.
Early works, including site investigations on the permanent school facilities, is expected to start late this year, pending planning approval.
The NSW Government is investing $8.6 billion in school infrastructure over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver 160 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This builds on the more than $9.1 billion invested in projects delivered since 2017, a program of $17.7 billion in public education infrastructure.
