Heaton Public School

Each day at Heaton Public School the teachers, students and the wider school community learn together with Respect, Responsibility and Inclusion. Heaton Public School is a proud multi-cultural school with students from over 25 nationalities learning shoulder-to-shoulder in our classrooms. Our multi-culturalism is partially due to the school's close proximity to the University of Newcastle which results in students who are studying or working at the university enrolling their children at Heaton Public School. The school also has a cohort of refugee students from a range of backgrounds. Such diversity allows students to experience a broad range of rich cultures and traditions through everyday interactions and special celebrations throughout the year.Ourschool motto, 'Only the Best',describes aschool thataspires to high achievements in the extensive range of programs offered to students with a focus on literacy, numeracy, technology and the performing arts.

This group of closely aligned public schools uses its combined size and resources to afford their students valuable learning experiences that are not always possible or sustainable for individual schools. The combined schools also work to provide highly effective and targeted programs to ensure a smooth transition of students from Year 6 to Year 7 to their local Callaghan College Campus. Heaton Public School, with a population of about190 students, provides a stimulating and secure environment for our students where our core values are clearly communicated and aspired to byour whole school community.The Heaton Public School community lives by the school's motto, "Only the Best", to ensure a welcoming, stimulating and successful educational experience for each individual student and their family.

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.
