Education plays a pivotal role in transforming our cities. Education drives innovation, fosters our sense of community, and facilitates the evolution of our cities.

Urbis is thrilled to be part of a multi-disciplinary team delivering the future of schools and education, with the Westmead Catholic Community, launching today in Western Sydney.

Working collaboratively with the Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta and its team, Urbis is embarking on the delivery of a transparent and creative process of engaging with school and broader community to create contemporary learning precincts.

The Westmead Catholic Community is an innovative education campus adjacent to the learning opportunities of Western Sydney’s premier health and education precinct.

Westmead Catholic Community will foster collaboration and outreach to enhance the lives of those in need within the local and wider community. Over a 10 year period, the project will bring together four schools as well as social services to help parishioners, students, their families and the wider community. The schools include some of Sydney’s most respected and historic schools, Parramatta Marist and Catherine McAuley High School.

As part of the masterplan for the site, complementary uses could include health care, aged care, university partnerships and accommodation. The community will be invited to provide ideas and feedback to inform the master plan for the site.

For students, Westmead Catholic Community will be a 21st century learning environment that grows the potential of students and provides learning opportunities through industry partnerships and community connections.
