Nimmitabel Public School
Nimmitabel Public School has been providing quality public education to the local area since 1869. Students are drawn from the immediate township, as well as the surrounding rural areas. NPS is a PP5 school with a 2016 enrolment figure of 29 students. This enrolment figure has been maintained over the course of the past ten years (with an average enrolment of 28.2 students throughout this period). The students at NPS are supported by: a teaching principal, three part-time temporary teachers, a School Learning Support Officer (3 days per week) and a specialist music teacher (one day per fortnight), a School Administration Manager (7 days per fortnight) and a general assistant (1 day per week). This staffing allocation allows the school to operate multi-stage classes across the week. The teaching staff remain committed to continuous improvement in the capacity to deliver a broad and high-quality curriculum to all students in an enjoyable, supportive and stimulating learning environment. This has been achieved through high-quality and targeted professional development (in programs such as L3 and Focus on Reading) and extensive analysis of student data. Historically, Nimmitabel Public School has received additional equity funding through the Country Areas Program, Priority Schools Program, National Partnerships: Low Socio-Economic Communities and more recently through the Resource Allocation Model. Our average FOEI across 2013/14 was 89. The school enjoys the support of its parent body, with an active PC, who run the weekly canteen service, fundraise to support school programs and initiatives and play an important role in the school's self-evaluation process. Nimmitabel Public School is a member of the Monaro Small Schools' Network (MSSN) and the Monaro Education Group (MEG). Together these networks provide opportunities for the teachers and students of Nimmitabel Public School to collaborate with and engage in programs that are designed to meet the identified needs of our local community.
