- “Kingsford Smith School will be able to accommodate approximately 1,100 students with up to 110 teaching and ancillary staff. Enrolment will be in stages, beginning in 2009 with students from preschool to year 7, and expanding progressively each year until the school has students enrolled from preschool to year 10 in 2012.”
Apparently the $500,000 saved on construction’s been spend on smart boards and wireless internet.

UPDATED: The Canberra Times brings word that Steve Dozspot does not think the school is ready at all:
- ”Mr Barr has waxed lyrical about the timely fashion with which the school has opened … why then does the back of the school still look like a construction site surrounded by barbed wire?” he said.
”It is quite clear that the front of the school is well and truly open for business but the back end of the school which faces Hardwick Crescent is surrounded by barbed wire, signs and activity that indicate construction is still in progress.”
A spokesman for Mr Barr confirmed work was continuing, but on landscaping and sporting ovals.
