Three local primary schools – Bradbury, Blairmount and Thomas Acres – are at 100 percent capacity.
Freedom of Information documents obtained by NSW Labor have revealed half of all the schools in Campbelltown are at or above 90 percent capacity.
These include Rosemeadow Public School (94.29 percent), Campbelltown Public School (92.86 percent),
Campbelltown Performing Arts High School (92.45 percent) and Thomas Reddal High School (92.11 percent)
The documents revealed more than half the schools in NSW were at 90 per cent capacity or above.
“Students, their parents and teachers in Campbelltown deserve better,’’ says local Labor MP Greg Warren.
“Bradbury and Blairmount public schools are at the top of the list when it comes to school capacity,’’ said the Member for Campbelltown.
“It’s important to remember those two schools are also near two of Campbelltown’s biggest and newest estates in Newbrook and Hillcroft which means those schools can expect even more enrolments in the not-to-distant future.
“It’s also concerning that this government has no plans to build any new schools to cater for those ever-expanding areas.
“It’s not just Blairmount and Bradbury public schools that are bursting at the seams either.
“Thomas Acres Public School is also completely full while Rosemeadow Public School, Campbelltown Public School, Campbelltown Performing Arts High School and Thomas Reddal High School are also close to capacity.
“Liberal Camden MP Chris Patterson’s electorate is seeing new schools built left, right and centre, while Campbelltown continues to be neglected.
“The Berejiklian Government has the wrong priorities when they splash cash on stadium rebuilds in Sydney and refuse to build new schools in Campbelltown,” Mr Warren said.
