Everyone can see that a new school is needed.
A new primary and high school in fact. It doesn't take a genius to work that out.
Maybe even a new primary school for the Shiralee estate too.
In saying that, the NSW government has a long history of only putting in these schools at a point where the demand is so high that the school is already over capacity, take Oran Park primary school and high school. The high school is also built for a capacity of 2000 children.
Additionally, look at Picton high school, the only high school between Camden and the southern highlands, in another major growth area.
Instead of building a second high school, they have completely demolished the previous one at significant disruption to the children to rebuild it for a bigger capacity.
I can see the importance of it but I can also see it as another pipe dream.
