Schofields school ready to welcome new students


To meet the needs of families in Sydney’s thriving North West, St Joseph’s Primary Schofields will open brand new facilities in coming weeks purpose-built for modern learning, including spaces designed for science, technology, investigations and creativity. The expansion of this caring school will also include a community cafe to be completed in 2021.

Principal Lesley Studans is ready to enrol new students at St Joseph’s Primary right now, including for the 2021 school year.

“I’m so excited for students and the opportunities that these outstanding new facilities will provide for learning and play,” Mrs Studans said.

As COVID-19 restrictions ease, Mrs Studans is looking forward to welcoming community members to the school to experience the exciting new facilities. In the meantime, architects DTA have shared an artist’s impression of the design for the school that shows what’s in store for St Joseph’s students and their families.

The new classrooms will see Year 5 students and Kindergarten located close by to support the school’s buddy program. The Kindergarten area features a bike track and huge sandpit, sure to be popular with little learners.

St Joseph’s, or ‘Joey’s’ as the friendly school community is known locally, has a kangaroo and joey mascot. It’s a reminder for students of the school’s location where once kangaroos were known to graze.

“We plan to have a place with chickens and gardens which pays tribute to the rural history of Schofields and teaches students about caring for the environment, honouring our Indigenous heritage,’’ Mrs Studans said.
