Sale of the Hurlstone Farm

*** Latest news of HAHS relocation and land sale ***

*** UPDATE: 15 Feb 2020 ***
The DET is conducting a community information session regarding this project pn Thursday 20 Feb, 3pm-6:30pm at Hurlstone.
All alumni are welcome/encouraged to attend. (For more information view the invitation leaflet)

On 10th December 2019, a new annoucement was made concerning the relocation of Hurlstone.

Instead of being relocated to Richmond, it will now remain at Glenfield as a selective, boarding, agricultural high school, but be linked into a new proposal at Richmond as part of a restructuring of agricultural eduction in NSW.
This appears to be welcome news for Hurlstone, but there are concerns and ambiguities raised by this announcement which are yet to be clarified - particularly in relation to what facilities will be upgraded and how much farm land will be sold.
Of particular concern was a Landcom announcement on the same day that 3500 homes would be built on former HAHS land!
