Overcrowded Sydney schools will wait longer for new space
The Sydney Morning Herald – http://www.smh.com.au/national/education/overcrowded-sydney-schools-will-wait-longer-for-new-space-20151027-gkjelt.html
“Schools on the north shore are so full that many, including Artarmon, Northbridge and Chatswood, are well above capacity and at Willoughby Public there are more than 2000 students on a site shared with Willoughby Girls High.
The three hectare site was designed to accommodate just 450 students.”
Life in no-vacation nation

“Edmund McCombs moved to Sydney six years ago — and has no plans to leave. It’s not just the beaches or the cafe-lined harbour that keeps the 33-year-old social sustainability manager Down Under.

“For some, their university course is a ticket punch en route to a solid career, while for others it’s more about campus life and making new friends.
