As we attempt to provide future school facilities, within the context of population growth and decrease in available land, what are some of the rules and responses.

Join us for this informative and thought provoking kick off to 2017 as we commence exploration of the changing world and how school facilities need to respond.

The seminar will be held in the AIS NSW Conference Room, Level 12, 99 York Street, Sydney.

The NSW Government has released a Draft Education and Child Care State Environmental Planning Policy for public consultation.  This has major implications for schools particularly in relation to development without consent, exempt development and complying development certificates.  It is probably even more exciting for schools than when the Infrastructure SEPP came out. 

With the growth in Western Sydney the approach to school planning and the shape of facilities is changing and the Government has responded with the design of the new Arthur Phillip High School in Parramatta.  A “high” rise school.



A bit of context - the numbers and projections.  What is happening and where.  What is being done about it and by who.


The Draft SEPP - what it means and how you can have your say.  We are privileged to have Samantha Daly from McCullough Roberston, Lawyers (http://www.mccullough.com.au/people/f/View/120/S/), to present the draft SEPP, what it means and how you can have your say.


A case study - Arthur Phillip High School and why and how it has been approached.  We have organised two key of the key players to give an overview from the educators and the designers perspectives.  Andrew Cortese (BVN/Grimshaw Architects) and Karen Bryant (NSW Department of Education) will provide an insight into the reasons and responses.


Discussion & refreshments.

This is an opportunity to hear the details of the Draft SEPP and how it may influence your decisions and how you may be able to input to the final legislation.


Arthur Phillip High School is a direct response to the changing context of providing teaching and learning facilities in the western Sydney growth corridor.

Light refreshments will be served at the end of the seminar and allow us time for discussion, observations and reflections.

We would like to thank McCullough Robertson Lawyers, Grimshaw Architects and DET for providing their skills, expertise's and time.

See attached flier for sharing and distribution.
