Castlereagh Public School
Castlereagh Public School's statement of purpose is to recognise and strive for excellence in academic achievement, positive aesthetic, personal and social attitudes in a small rural school where whole-staff pastoral care can be exercised for all pupils. A sense of belonging and a secure and caring environment enable children to establish self esteem and sensitivity to others, and the environment is enhanced where community participation is valued. Our school motto 'Courtesy and Good Citizenship' reflects this statement. In this school's semi rural situation, we strive to enhance students' overall confidence and develop each student as a unique person and a valued member of this community. Students are encouraged to develop self-reliance, leadership, responsibility for personal welfare in a caring and supportive attitude towards each other and respect for all members of the school and wider community.
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.
