About the project

Auburn North Public School is one of a group of fice schools in the Parramatta region that have been grouped together by SINSW for concurrent design and delivery. Conrad Gargett developed a kit of parts approach to the design of the schools. Key parts of the buildings were standardized.

The repetition maximized efficiency and minimized cost across the group, while allowing enough flexibility for each school to be considered an an individual response to site and community.

The upgrade at Auburn North Public School includes a new building with ten new home bases and upgraded administration facilities. The new learning facilities provide state of the art flexible learning spaces tat will support contemporary teaching models. Connected learning landscapes are clustered together either side of a large covered terraced area; perfect for outdoor gathering and flexible lessons. The new covered terrace opens out to the existing playing fields, creating a fresh connection through the existing school to the green landscape of the fields.
