The City supports the proposal for a new school for 600 students on the South Sydney Hospital site in the heart of Green Square.
It no longer makes sense to build schools that are used in the day and shut up at night and on weekends – so in partnership with the Department of Education we’ll be building a brand new, integrated school which sets the benchmark for how schools in urban environments should be.
There’ll be shared facilities for all of the community, including a multi-purpose hall, rehearsal and meeting rooms, after school care, sports courts and – most importantly – green open space.
The school will be 10-minute walk from Green Square Station and is right next door to the childcare centre, creative centre and community sheds. The Department of Education will go out to competition for the school’s final design next year and be ready to accept enrolments within five years.
This is a huge win for Green Square – but we have more work to do. Commit to Green Square here: http://www.clovermoore.com.au/greensquare
