Goolgowi Public School

The mission of Goolgowi is to facilitate the academic, cultural, physical, emotional and social development of all children so that they are encouraged to become self-motivated learners who can work independently and co-operatively. There is an expectation that parents and teachers work together and that students all strive for excellence. The school community encourages children to accept challenges and develop positive attitudes about themselves, others, their environment and their heritage. Our mission is achieved by the implementation of programs such as Count Me In Too, Accelerated Literacy, Peer Support, Support Teacher Learning Assistance, Live Life Well and Crunch and Sip. Achieving above the State average in the NAPLAN tests, students are encouraged to participate in a broad range of activities such as sport, public speaking and art. Students experience different cultures through school performances and participation in the CWA Country of Study. Goolgowi, while an isolated rural school, enjoys close links with its parent body and remains a focal point of the town and wider community. The school's environment and friendly atmosphere allow the students to feel comfortable and safe within its boundaries.

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.
