Government's Old School Approach Not Good Enough

Campbelltown MP Greg Warren has urged the NSW Government to rethink its

decision to not build any new schools in Campbelltown.

The government’s own Glenfield to Macarthur Strategy confirmed there were no

plans to build any new schools in Campbelltown despite the forecast increase in

population.

New housing in Menangle Park, Gilead and Appin will all place pressure on

existing schools which Mr Warren said he fears will burst.

Mr Warren introduced a Notice of Motion in the Parliament of NSW recently that:

- Notes Campbelltown is set for a large increase in population over the

coming years due to land releases instigated by the Government

- Acknowledges the Government’s Glenfield to Macarthur Strategy did not

include one new school in the Campbelltown Local Government Area

- Demands the Government rethink its strategy and start planning for a new

school, or multiple schools, in Campbelltown to cater for the growing

population

“It is imperative that a constructive learning environment is created to give our best

students the best possible chance to thrive in the classroom,” he said.

“We know that Campbelltown is set to become home to tens of thousands of new

residents, yet there isn’t one new school planned for the area.

“What it means is students will be crammed into classrooms like pickles in a jar.

“This is a very real and avoidable problem – it simply requires a bit of foresight and

good will on behalf of the NSW Liberals.

“To date, that has not happened though.”
