2.1.3 Schools Example 3

Location of Example: 151°26'41" East, 27°34'49" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Generally rural school complexes are significantly smaller than their typical urban schools counterparts.
  • The school's associated infrastructure, such as ovals and playing fields, can still be identified.
Regional Considerations:
  • School complexes within urban and regional centres generally use a large land area which is reflective of the number of students eg 200 plus. Whereas schools in remote rural townships may only have 15 students and this will be reflected in the extent of land utilised by the school.
