Carrington Public School
Carrington Public School is a small, well-resourced school, close to the city-centre of Newcastle. We pride ourself on fabulous teaching staff and happy students. We offer strong educational and enrichment programs such as music, choir, debating and drama. We have lovely grounds, sandpit and cubby-house, a school bus, video-conferencing facilities and lots more. Visitors are always welcome to tour our school. Our aim is to provide high quality teaching instruction that meets the learning needs of every student. Optimum performance is encouraged in all learning experiences. We welcome students from all cultures and celebrate our Indigenous heritage. We teach our students to be confident, considerate and respectful at all times. We believe all students are entitled to a socially, emotionally and physically safe learning environment. We value our community and believe that a child's success is based on a three-way partnership between the staff, the parents and the student. Through this partnership we aim to create students who are life-long learners, independent thinkers, respectful individuals and responsible citizens.
Cooler Classrooms Program
The NSW Government is committed to providing students with healthy and comfortable learning environments. That’s why we’ve invested a record $500 million to provide a sustainable air conditioning program for NSW schools.
To ensure the NSW Government responds to the needs of students in the hottest parts of the State, we will provide air conditioning in classrooms and libraries at schools that experience a mean maximum January temperature of 30°C and above.
Schools that sit below 30°C will be able to apply for funding to receive air conditioning in their classrooms and libraries, allowing more schools to benefit from air conditioning than ever before.
This school is eligible to apply for funding through the Cooler Classrooms Program. Applications for the second round of funding are now closed.
