Funding For Smalls Road Primary School Announced
Published on 20 June 2017
City of Ryde has welcomed the State Government’s announcement of funding to build a new Smalls Road Primary School in Ryde.
The Smalls Road School will cater for up to 1,000 students and the new school is expected to open in 2020.
City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Bill Pickering, said: “Council has been lobbying for a new school for many years to cope with the expected surge in population and new school enrolments.
“The City of Ryde is already in the midst of unprecedented growth and this is very welcome news for local families.”
The new primary school will be built on the site of the old Ryde High School which was closed in 1986. A concept design shows a circular design with three levels and playing fields.
The City of Ryde has been in discussion with Education NSW on a shared-use agreement for the existing sportsfield at the Smalls Road site that would allow for continued use by community sporting groups outside of school hours.
