We are well resourced, thus being able to provide a variety of teaching programmes to suit all our childrens' needs. We provide successful programmes such as Reading Recovery, L3, Towards Early Numeracy, Count Me In, Comprehension Through Art, Fundamental Movement and Learning Assistance. All staff, including our School Learning Support Officers,complete regular Professional Learning to keep their classrooms aligned to current teaching beliefs and syllabuses. In 2015 we are running an Inquiry Learning class group where children set a sense of their own learning based on their individual learning styles and interests. We have a strong tradition in a wide variety of school sports, as well as dance and creative arts programs.Student Wellbeing is also our prime focus. We aim to have all our children enjoying and valuing their school lives, holding a balanced view of their world with a sense of resilience, group co-operation and being emotionally astute.Programmes to support this include Bounce Back, values, Drumbeat, Social Circus and regular visits, advice and suport from out-of-school agencies.Each child in our school has a Personalised Learning Plan that is formulated with parents. Our school is very well resourced with funding coming through the Resource Allocation Model [RAM] that recognises our element of social disadvantage and 35% proportion of Aboriginal children. Through our strong budget we provide latest technology, including ipads for all classes, and VC and interactive classes. We are also able to maintain smaller class sizes. Students, staff and community members all work together at Coraki Public School towards achieving high expectations, well rounded citizens who have a positive sense of self-worth. We invite you to contact us to find out more about the great publicschool educational opportunities we can offer your child.  

Flood recovery update

The NSW Department of Education is coordinating an emergency response effort that is unprecedented in terms of scale and impact. A large number of schools in the Northern Rivers region have damage to either the entire site or some buildings and facilities.

The local School Infrastructure NSW office has inspected all schools in flood-impacted areas and has removed rubbish, cleaned and secured affected sites to ensure they are safe. Teams are repairing and remediating schools that were damaged during the foods and assessing works needed to rebuild the worst affected schools.

Coraki Public School suffered moderate damage as a result of the floods. Remediation is now complete. Monitoring of the school will continue.
