Wyangala Dam Public School
Wyangala Dam Public School is a one teacher school situated 40kms east of Cowra on the Lachlan River. Pupils live on small properties in the surrounding rural district or reside in the villages of Darbys Falls and Wyangala Dam. The school is supported by a very keen and energetic Parents and Citizens association who fund-raise and assist the school in many ways. The school is the focus for the local community and surrounding districts and is held in very high esteem by all. The school's facilities are made available to the community throughout the year. Pupils and staff benefit from having separate rooms for Art/Craft, Library, Sports store and a large safe play area. The main play area has been further enhanced by the erection of 'Shade-Sails' which are both aesthetic and protect the pupils from possible danger from the sun. The school promotes Environmental Education with many programs addressing environmental issues. The aim at our school is to encourage and support students to achieve maximum potential.

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.
