Eumungerie Public School
Eumungerie Public School is a small, semi-isolated rural school, located 40km North of Dubbo, with a very committed staff. Teaching and learning programs are enhanced by positive attitudes in the students, parents and staff who work together supporting the school and its direction. In a caring school environment provision is made to develop students intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally. The school's goal remains for students to be equipped with the skills needed to adapt to a changing world and become independent life-long learners. We aim to improve student literacy results through the implementation a variety strategies including quality literacy in the classroom and catering for individual students needs through one on one interaction. The school has access to a range of technology resources including SMART boards in our classrooms, computers for every student and laptops and iPads for literacy and numeracy. The school has developed a very positive sports development program centred around improving each student's fitness, skill level, ability to use judgement, a sense of fair play and sportsmanship. We participate in the Small Schools State Touch Football Knockout, in 2012 making it to the finals. The improved garden environment is a source of attraction to local wildlife further enhancing the unique setting of Eumungerie Public School. Parents are involved in many aspects of the school ranging from lunch helpers, P and C members to ground beautification. We have been working with the community to help to re-establish cricket and tennis facilities, fundraising during 2012. A free onsite playgroup, run fortnightly, provides an alternative to preschool for parents of younger members of the community. We are proud of the dynamic association that we have developed within the community and parent body and will continue to develop this relationship.
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 has a mean maximum January temperature of 30°C and above and will form part of the NSW Government’s priority program. School Infrastructure NSW will be in contact with the school as the program continues to roll out.
