Statement from the Minister for Education: Mowbray Public School
3 February 2014
Far from demolishing the school, in June last year the NSW Government announced a major redevelopment of Mowbray Public School to accommodate rising demand for school places on the North Shore.
Since then a Project Control Group, including the school principal, parents, local council and the Department of Education and Communities, has been established.
This group will consider a range of options to increase the capacity of the school and will then make a recommendation to the Department.
No decision on the specific design for an expanded school has yet been made. Considering the need for additional space for students, the classrooms built under the BER program will remain.
Consistent with the NSW Government's reforms, Local Schools, Local Decisions, we will continue to listen to the school community on how the project is configured to best suit local needs.
