Members may be aware of reports in the media about the need for more public schools in the inner City. One of the factors driving this need is the increase in young families. Members will probably have noticed this increase in Glebe, but it is taking place throughout the entire area. It seems that no-one expected that couples moving into inner city apartments would decide to raise families in these apartments. Hence it is anticipated there will be a considerable shortfall in school places, because most of the schools in the area are already full.

There are discussions currently under way about suitable sites in Pyrmont/Ultimo. I am unable to give you details at this point, but as soon as something definite is decided I will publish the details.
