Tea Gardens Public School
Working Together to Achieve Great Things for Great Kids' describes the school's and community's commitment to the students at Tea Gardens Public School. In 2008 the school received a 'Director General's Award for School Achievement' which acknowledged the school's significant achievements in improving student outcomes and the wonderful contribution that all members of the school community make. The well-maintained grounds and excellent outdoor facilities are a significant feature of the school. The school's parliament, 'The Voice of the Children' is recognised as a model of student participation in the decision making process and celebrated its 20th Official Opening in 2009. Parliament, together with the school's debating and public speaking programs, produces highly confident and self assured students. The school has developed and implemented a very effective learning support program. Students with a range of special needs are well supported in mainstream classes and achieve great success. Some unique features of Tea Gardens Public School are its golf and fishing programs, Art and Craft Expo, school and community band, healthy canteen, Junior Red Cross and technology facilities.
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.
