Concept design

The project will provide classrooms and new core school facilities including a hall with a covered outdoor area, as well as outdoor spaces with play equipment and a games court. This will be the first time the local community has had the opportunity to look at the concept design for their new school.

‘We are excited to see a glimpse into the future of our school. The concept design helps us better understand and envision the state-of-the-art facilities that will support our students in their learning,’ Lennox Head Public School Principal Deborah Langfield said.

New preschool

A new public preschool will also be provided at the site as part of the NSW government’s commitment to expand access to early childhood education. The preschool will be separated from the primary school areas and will have its own entry, parking and secure outdoor area with play equipment.

‘Investing in our children’s future means creating spaces where students and teachers can excel, which is why it’s so exciting to see these concept designs bringing the vision for the new Lennox Head Public School to life,’ said Deputy Premier and Minister for Education and Early Learning Prue Car.

The design will continue to be developed in consultation with technical experts and local stakeholders.

Work is also underway to prepare specialist environmental and planning reports to inform the planning application for the project. These reports will be available for community review once the application for planning approval is placed on public exhibition.
