It has a number of original buildings and an historical train museum. A wide range of learning experiences in six key learning areas is provided in multi-age class groupings. Literacy, Numeracy and student engagement are priority areas. Support is provided to students with special needs and a variety of programs are used to enhance student welfare. Extra curricular experiences are offered in the academics, the arts as well as in sport. A strong partnership exists between the school and the community and the school highly values the support provided by an active Parents and Citizens Committee.
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.
