During the design development of the school upgrade, the project will undertake numerous engagement activities, such as:
Project Reference Group (PRG)
Regular meetings with the PRG will be held throughout the master planning and design development process. The PRG is a working group consisting of the Director of Public Schools for the Ryde area, the Principal of Denistone East Public School and representatives from the department's Asset Management Unit. The group meet on a regular basis to discuss the project and key issues to be considered in the design of the school.
Letterbox drops will be conducted throughout the development process. These letters will be distributed to the surrounding residential properties providing a brief overview of the project and advising of upcoming community information booths where local residents can obtain additional information on the project.
Newspaper advertisements will be placed in the local paper to notify the community of the proposed development and upcoming information booths.
Information booths will be held at the school, and throughout the local community, on a regular basis throughout the project. These sessions will provide the community with an opportunity to obtain up-to-date information about the project and equip them with the ability to provide their feedback.
