Fun-Filled Family Fete & Petting Zoo at School
Annandale is a suburb in the inner-western area of Sydney and is located approximately five kilometres from the CBD. The suburb was named by Major George Johnson who arrived on the Ship "Lady Penrhyn" of the First Fleet of convicts. Major Johnston was granted 600 acres of land around Annandale and Stanmore; at first the area was known as Johnston Bay and later was renamed by Johnstone as Annandale after his birthplace Annan in Scotland. Johnston married one of the convicts, an Esther Abrahams and they built a residence for their family on the land, naming it Annandale House. Sadly, it was demolished in 1905, although the original gates were preserved and now stand proud on the grounds of the Annandale North Public School.
With a strong cultural and historic past, the school's aim is to provide a happy and safe learning environment based on high-quality teaching and great opportunities for all its students.
