Parents fear their children will be left high and dry if a decision to transform Homebush West Public School into a high-rise education hub goes ahead.
The Inner West Courier recently reported students were crammed into their school like sardines, as the Department of Education’s plan to expand by buying land across the road from St Anne’s Anglican Church had stalled.
A spokesman said the Department would spend $20 million on 26 new classrooms, an expanded library, administration area, hall and an enlarged play area.
Strathfield state Labor MP Jodi McKay said the idea that 500 extra students and 26 new classrooms could be accommodated on the school’s existing land was unrealistic.
