The project at Parramatta Public School will include:
a new multi-storey Parramatta Public School for 1,000 students on the existing school site
40 permanent, flexible learning spaces and support areas
modern indoor and outdoor landscaped spaces.
The redevelopment and expansion of Parramatta Public School is the priority project to meet growth in primary student populations in and around Parramatta. It presents a unique opportunity to construct a school centrally located in the heart of the Parramatta CBD. It will be a showcase for the delivery of multi-storey education facilities in response to metropolitan Sydney's increasing residential density.
The learning spaces will be technology-rich to serve multiple learning contexts from large class groups to small clusters, providing better opportunities for collaboration and personalised learning.
Grimshaw Architects secured the design contract via an international design competition. Grimshaw has developed the final designs in association with BVN Architecture and the community.
The design concepts will offer:
facilities that are readily accessible and flexible to meet the demands of an evolving curriculum in line with future-focused learning principles
flexible and well-connected teaching and learning spaces that enable a variety of teaching and learning practices
spaces that are engaging and supportive for students and teachers
technology-rich settings with an emphasis on mobility and flexibility
capacity to support comprehensive curriculum delivery with a full range of specialist teaching spaces
a healthy and environmentally sustainable environment
innovative, connected outdoor spaces that enable play and collaborative learning
refurbishment and adaptive reuse of all existing heritage buildings
a valuable connection with adjacent educational facilities including the University of Western Sydney and Arthur Phillip High School.
