Yeoval Central School
Yeoval Central School is a comprehensive school with 119 enrolments from K-12, 18% identify as Aboriginal. Our values of respect, responsibility and cooperation permeate throughout our school. Yeoval Central Schools vision is to inspire all to be responsible, respectful learners, working together to achieve and grow. Our students bring with them a respect and understanding of their diverse backgrounds. They demonstrate high expectations of themselves and their peers both academically and socially. Tolerance, resilience and an appreciation of their opportunities underpins student behaviour and achievements. We have a diverse, committed and stable staffing mix who are dedicated to all students. They give their personal best to ensure all students learn and are committed to their own learning. We collaborate with other schools to enhance our curriculum offerings, sharing students and expert teachers in Stage 6 with Peak Hill, Tottenham, Trangie, Trundle and Tullamore Central Schools as part of the Western Access Program. School-based apprenticeships and traineeships have had proven success with students completing Year 12. Languages such as Wiradjuri and Stage 5 electives are extensive for a small school, providing our rural students with a diverse curriculum. Our expectations of learning and behaviour are high, ensuring all students achieve. Students will each have an individualised learning map developed collaboratively with their families and support staff. These include the year advisor, transition advisor, youth worker, learning and support teacher and school counsellor. Teachers are supported by instructional leaders in technology, literacy, numeracy and evidenced-based practices. Being a K-12 school, students experience a nurturing yet future-focused learning environment where emphasis is placed on literacy, numeracy and mastering employability skills. Our transition program is supported by our transition advisor who works individually with students from pre2post school. Transition points occur at preschool into Kindergarten, Year 6 into Year 7, Year 10 into Year 11 and Year 12 to post-school. We provide social and emotional support through our Wellbeing Model encompassing resilience training and positive behaviour for learning (PBL). Our varied extra-curricular activities give students breadth of exposure to sport, fitness, music, agriculture, community service performing arts, hospitality, public speaking and leadership. We have strong community partnerships creating dynamic opportunities for engaging with our preschool, aged care facility, PCYC, local farmers and business owners. Our school is a satellite host for a martial arts centre, providing opportunities for students and community members to engage in sport. Our excellent facilities include an upgraded administration area, large primary classrooms, trade training centre for metal and engineering, commercial kitchen bay, gym, agricultural farm and large playgrounds with fixed play equipment. Our learning centre encompasses a flexible learning space adapted to meet the needs of creative and critical thinkers. We have a robust wireless network and students support the BYOD (bring your own device) program, using collaborative learning tools to complement their learning. We are proud of all learning occurring within and outside of the classroom for all staff and students at Yeoval Central School, working together to inspire, learn and achieve.

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.
