Secondary Education Forum

The City of Sydney is partnering with the NSW Department of Education and Communities and hosting a forum on Tuesday 3 June at Alexandria Park Community School in the school hall between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
The Forum is on Public Secondary Education in the Inner Sydney area.
If you have children or plan to have children – you need to be there!
This is your opportunity to have your say and learn about how the Department plans for high schools, raise your concerns and contribute your ideas.
Some of the things that need to be considered:
  • Alexandria families will be facing the added pressure of increasing numbers of children from the Ashmore Estate (6,000+ more people) and other developments including whatever comes from the Central to Eveleigh corridor concept.  We must make sure there is good and informed planning for this growth in education demand – and it needs to start now!
  • We need to protect the Alexandria Park School from any attempts to sell land to make a quick buck – that’s how the Department of Education got into this mess with short term thinking.
  • We need to nurture the growing success of the Alexandria Park Community School – did you know that the school is ranked in the top 200 of all schools in NSW (public and private)?
  • We need to ensure the Alexandria Park Community School is maintained adequately.
Some background information:

Don’t just hope that it will all work out in the end – no-one cares about the future of your kids more than you!

RSVP online.
If you can’t attend, there is another meeting on Thursday 5 June, at Sydney Secondary College Blackwattle Campus, and there is a website where you can leave feedback – http://dec.engagementhq.com/consultation.
