Excitingly, plans are well underway to deliver a state-of-the-art, Preschool–Year 6 learning facility for the Pagewood and Matraville community. The amalgamation of St Agnes’ Catholic Primary School Matraville and Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Primary School Pagewood in January 2024 will bring together two schools communities with a shared history and charism of the daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.
Education in the eastern suburbs is about to change with the reimagining of three Catholic schools into state-of-the-art, innovative centres for contemporary learning.
On 12 November, Tony Farley, Executive Director of Sydney Catholic Schools and the principals from Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Primary School Pagewood, St Agnes’ Catholic Primary School Matraville, and Champagnat Catholic College Pagewood launched the exciting news of the Pagewood-Matraville Master Plan to the community.
Thank you to those who attended and actively participated in the session by submitting questions. Read the responses to every question submitted during the webinar.
243 attendees joined us for this webinar. 60% of attendees identified as parents, 10% were staff from the three schools, and parishioners from St Agnes and Our Lady of the Annunciation parishes constituted 3% of attendees. The balance was staff from other SCS schools or from head office. Attendees’ key interests elicited from the polls, exit survey and webinar were in the areas of learning approaches, curricula and co-curricular opportunities and the management of change/transitions for students and staff. Overall, most attendees at the webinar were excited about the master plan and what it represents for our schools and community.
