Waratah West Public School

Waratah West Public School is in the Newcastle area, 10 kilometres from the city centre. The uniqueness of our small, family-oriented environment has created opportunities for attention to be focused on the welfare of each individual student. It has also facilitated the development of supportive relationships between teachers, parents and students within a school community that brings together families from a variety of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. There are 55 families with a total of approximately 80 students enrolled for 2009. School structure consists of K to 6 multi-grade classes with four full time and one casual teacher employed with PSFP funds and a school administration manager. Currently, school-based data shows that 78% of students are achieving Stage outcomes in Literacy and 74% of students are achieving Stage outcomes in Numeracy.
