Brab­ham fam­ily wel­comes new school

Eastern Reporter - - Front Page -

BRAB­HAM mother Na­dia Pillera is look­ing for­ward to walk­ing her youngest daugh­ter to the new Brab­ham Pri­mary School in 2021.

Con­struc­tion will start on Lake­field Drive in late 2019.

The school, worth $18.5 mil­lion, will cater for 540 stu­dents from kinder­garten to Year 6.

Ms Pillera, her hus­band Dar­ren Fawcett and chil­dren moved to the Ariella Pri­vate Es­tate, which is on the same street as the school, a year ago.

She said she was ex­cited to meet more peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

“This was great news for us; our youngest child will be­gin her school­ing days when the pri­mary schools opens. This means we can walk her to and from school ev­ery day,” she said.

“When we first moved to the es­tate, it was ad­ver­tised that there would be a school be­ing built.

“This was some­thing we con­sid­ered prior to pur­chas­ing our block.”

She said if the school was not built, she would have to travel about 12 min­utes to schools in Ave­ley, Caver­sham and El­len­brook and deal with traf­fic is­sues along the new Lord Street.
