Empire Vale Public School
Our school is a small rural school located on the Far North Coast of NSW. Our aim is to provide a safe, friendly and stimulating environment for our students that maximises their learning and personal development outcomes. Our small size is one of our special attributes and we ensure our students are provided with a wide and varied range of educational experiences in all learning areas. The school is an important focal point of the community and it enjoys excellent support from parents and members of the community for all school activities whether they be cultural, sporting or academic events. Our students also have the advantage of a greater peer network through the school's participation in the Southern Cross Community of Small Schools Learning Community which provides an extended range of opportunities and activities such as debating, spelling bees, public speaking and science initiatives. For a small school we get great results. Examples of this include a student chosen to attend the World Leaders Forum in USA, Family Magazine Kids Page Editor, winners of the National Picasso Cow competition and national recognition for our students' photography.

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.
