Come down, talk to us and see for yourself what it's like for public school students in the Ulladulla area is the plea from many local parents.
Kevin Bartolo is a reluctant public speaker but did so because he wants his children and grandchildren to have the educational opportunities they and many others deserve.
Talk to parents like Mr Bartolo and Grant Schultz, both of whom have children at Ulladulla High, and you are told all is not well when it comes to meeting the current and future educational demands of the Ulladulla district.
Mr Schultz said the number of demountable buildings located all over the district shows schools are struggling to keep up with the demand.
"The argument that there is no immediate need at the high school and at all of the primary schools is an absolute nonsense," Mr Schultz said
"They are all beyond capacity."
Mr Schultz said in some situations children don't even have seats or tables to eat their lunches off.
They would love a "sit-down" meeting with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
"The basic solution is a short halt on the projects that are currently happening, only to allow a conversation between the community and the government bodies to take place," Mr Bartolo said.
"We just need to talk this through and make sure that we don't make bad mistakes by rushing."
Mr Bartolo is the administrator of the Facebook page Ulladulla Area Schools Expansion Group and has regular posts that feature his and many other people's concerns.
He urges other concerned parents and residents to go to the page and get involved in the process.
Mr Bartolo thinks there is a lot of confusion within government ranks when it comes to many local education issues - like the future of the SAS [Shoalhaven Anglican School] site on Croobyar Road, which in turn spills out into the community.
"SAS is not up for sale and nobody has ever brought that up unless there is a hidden agenda to sell the leftover part of the SAS site that they don't want for Ulladulla High School," Mr Bartolo.
He says send down the Premier, the various ministers [Education Planning, etc] to meet with the community and explain the situation and Mr Schultz agrees.
Mr Bartolo would like to see a halt to the government's plans to sell its land at Garside Road, Mollymook and does not want a start to the new Budawang School to start until further planning for the future is done.
"It makes me more worried because there is a lot more information they need to give the public in relation to what they plan to do with the high school," Mr Bartolo said.
Mr Bartolo said since he started the online page more people and other schools are making contact.
"A bigger argument for the area to have better schooling infrastructure is being created - not just for the high school but for issues for primary schools are now coming up," he said.
His hopes for the future are reasonable.
"I want to see that the high school and primary school won't have a problem with overcrowding," he said.
Mr Bartolo said there needs to be a bit of forward-thinking and planning.
He stressed that he and many others want to support the Budawang School community in any way they can.
Mr Schulz got on board, as a parent when Kevin approached him for support.
Nearly two years ago Mr Schulz also coordinated a petition and got 10,000 signatures calling the SAS site to be bought for a second high school.
The petition was tabled at parliament.
Mr Schultz agrees that Budawang School also has an overcrowding issue which needs to be resolved as well.
"I don't think anyone is unhappy it's being built and it's a great step forward," Mr Schultz said.
"By the sounds of it, they are just building to meet their current capacity which is ridiculous."
They both believe the view from the government saying there was no need for Ulladulla High to be expanded was also ridiculous.
Mr Schultz also has his solution.
"The short answer is they need to expand Ulladulla High School in a format that the community and the department agree on," Mr Schultz said.
He added community engagement was a critical part of the process.
They both agree the new high school and Budawang school could be accommodated on the same land at Croobyar Road.
Mr Schultz said such a relationship would be a social and educational winner.
