Community Information Session
Thank you to the people who attended our recent online information sessions about our environmental education plans and our student accommodation project.

Frensham Schools Development Projects
We understand there is a high level of community interest in the growth and development of Frensham Schools.
In December 2019, Frensham lodged three DAs simultaneously with Wingecarribee Shire Council.
In May 2020, the Staff Accommodation Project was approved to proceed, and last term we commenced building 4 staff residences on the corner of Range Road and Railway Parade.
In July 2020, the Indoor Sports Hall was approved to proceed, and we anticipate being able to commence this project prior to the end of 2021.
A determination on the Student Accommodation Project is still pending. The Student Accommodation Project (the “Holt Project”) is an ambitious venture, seeking to create a unique residential, bush campus facility for Frensham students. It builds on our commitment to leadership and innovation and will form an important part of a sophisticated community of practice in Character Education. The carefully designed proposal creates opportunities for Frensham students to engage meaningfully in learning about, and caring for, this unique area without adverse ecological impact.
Further information about these projects will be posted on this page as they are available.
Access to the technical reports and documentation provided as part of the original Development Application in December 2019 is via this link, Application Reference 20/0747.
We also invite you to register here for future updates on our plans. We remain committed to ensuring our students, parent community, alumnae and wider members of the community are kept informed of this project, and we welcome any further questions or feedback via firstname.lastname@example.org.
