Consultation open on Narrabundah College modernisation
Narrabundah College students walking through their campus. The modernisation of that campus is now open for consultation.
It’s been a well-known and loved public school across the community for more than 40 years – but it’s time to talk about the future.
Consultation is now open on the modernisation of the College, and principal Kerrie Grundy believes it is a very exciting time for the school.
“Narrabundah is a great school that achieves great things for its students,” Ms Grundy said.
“Obviously some of the buildings are getting towards their end of their life, while some have already come down.
“This process is about setting up the college as a 21st century learning space for all students.”
Feedback will be collected from the local community using online surveys, interactive ideas boards, pop-up events and theme workshops, as well as engagement with alumni and future students in surrounding primary and high schools.
The feedback received will be used by the Government to help develop the concept plans for modernising the College.
Narrabundah College will continue to operate from the same site during the modernisation process – but how best to use the site, what is needed to equip it for the future and what is achievable all form part of the discussion.
“As part of this consultation we also want the Narrabundah community to tell us not just about our education future, but also on the community connections and partnerships, facilities and amenities they expect from their local school,” Ms Grundy said.
“We want to know what makes this school special to you, so we can ensure those aspects are maintained and preserved as we move Narrabundah College forward with the next stage of its development.”
