The State Government is responsible for building new schools, and they decide when and where the school should be built.
If you want more schools in your suburb then support the schools4wyndam campaign and contact your local MP to let them know your concerns. You don’t need to be an expert, just let your member of parliament know in your own words why you feel this issue is important for your community and how it affects you and your family.
