The Junction Public School
The Junction Public School situated in inner city Newcastle, enjoys the advantages of an inner city location being in close proximity to major cultural and commercial enterprises. Our mission and vision statements describe a professional and experienced staff, in educational partnership with parents and the community, committed to providing quality educational experiences for all students. Our school focus is to provide opportunities for students to become independent thinkers, self-directed learners and resilient, caring and innovative individuals. An explicit values framework underpins our student well-being practices as we role-model and encourage students to 'value themselves, value others and value the environment'. The school is strongly committed to strengthening its capacity to deliver broad and high-quality curriculum and technology programs to students and is highly regarded in the region for its academic, cultural and sporting achievements. Outstanding band, music and dance programs are a feature of the school as well as a range of sporting, cultural and environmental activities, further enhancing the positive school culture and inclusive environment.
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.
