Soldiers Point Public School
Soldiers Point Public School opened its doors in 1947 and has successfully met the challenge of providing an education for children in the local area during that time. The school's Mission Statement, 'Our school community is committed to providing a supportive learning environment which promotes success and equity', sits at the heart of our learning code and is supported by four guiding principles: Promote quality teaching in a quality learning environment, Promote collaboration through open communication, Value a spirit of respect and tolerance for each individual, and Instil lifelong learning and promote healthy lifestyle choices. Soldiers Point Public School is in the Port Stephens area approximately 50km from Newcastle. The school's population, which currently stands at around 345, is steadily growing. The school has fourteen classes, including an Opportunity Class (OC) for students in Years 5 and 6. Soldiers Point is part of the Hunter / Central Coast Region. Soldiers Point is not a focus school.
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.
