North Kellyville Public School


Thank you for your interest in the new North Kellyville Public School project.

The project page you are trying to access is not being updated as we are currently developing a new website for School Infrastructure NSW featuring major works project information. This is not a reflection of the project's progress, but a way for us to consolidate information and ensure the greatest accuracy is provided to the public.

We appreciate your patience while we work to deliver this renewed and user-friendly information hub for our new schools and major capital works upgrades. The new project website site will be ready by December 2017. 

In the meantime, please direct any questions regarding the progress of this project to schoolinfrastructure@det.nsw.edu.au.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to sharing more information with you soon.


Project overview

 

The new public school located on Hezlett Road, Kellyville, between Withers Road and Samantha Riley Drive, responds to the expanding urban growth identified within the Sydney West Central District and the projected population growth in the Local Government Area.

The design of the new public school will include 40 new future-focused learning spaces and core facilities accommodating up to 1000 students.

The school will deliver:

  • future-focused learning spaces
  • a hall
  • a library
  • Covered Outdoor Learning Areas (COLA)
  • semi-enclosed courtyards
  • external play, gaming and sporting facilities.

In conjunction with community representatives, we have developed the following Educational Principles for the design of the school:

Principle 1 - Focus on the needs of learners and learning.

  • Promote learning for students and teachers through collaboration, social interaction and active investigation. Encourage learner self-management and self-direction
  • Support a full range of teaching strategies from direct explicit instruction to facilitation of inquiry and authentic project and problem-based learning.

Principle 2 - Build community and identity and create a culture of welcome, inclusion and belonging.

  • Build community and identity and create a culture of welcome, inclusion and belonging that reflects and respects diversity within the school's community.

Principle 3 - Be aesthetically pleasing.

  • Ensure there is space provided for teacher collaboration and storage of resources to enhance existing program areas
  • Enable aspects of the buildings, building design and outdoor spaces to be learning tools in themselves – for example, learning from the ecologically sustainable features of the design and associated energy management systems
  • Maximise the openness of the site for seamless learning and teaching between inside and outside learning spaces.

Principle 4 - Provide contemporary, sustainable learning environments that:

  • Promote learning for students and teachers through collaboration, social interaction and active investigation
  • Encourage learner self-management and self-direction
  • Facilitate learning and connection anywhere, anytime by providing seamless access to ICT and integration of learning resources throughout the learning spaces
  • Be integrated into, and maximise the use of the natural environment
  • Enable aspects of the buildings, building design and outdoor spaces to be learning tools in themselves—for example, learning from the ecologically sustainable features of the design and associated energy management systems
  • Are age and stage appropriate.

Principle 5 - Embed the potential for re-configurability, both in the present for multi-purpose use and over time for changing needs.
