Murray Farm Public School
Murray Farm Public School was established at Carlingford in 1969 and is proud of its outstanding history as a Public School. It has a well-deserved reputation within the wider community as a caring school that exists for the benefit of all students. It has high expectations for student behaviour and achievement. Our students continue to excel academically, and in the areas of performing arts and sport under the well-trained and dedicated teaching staff. We continue to strive to create child centred learning environments where students' needs are identified and students are engaged in the pursuit of their personal best. Murray Farm Public School is a Japanese bilingual school; one of five bilingual schools in New South Wales. This program involves two classes in each grade learning Japanese literacy for a part of each day, using an immersion approach. A Japanese LOTE program for the non bilingual classes takes place once a week which teaches basic Japanese Literacy as well as teaching Asian culture, history and geography. A focus on developing the whole child is a major factor in the success and happiness of students at our school. The school has an inclusive philosophy that supports all students and encourages everyone to achieve his or her potential. The implementation of effective student welfare programs underpins the stimulating learning environment provided for our students.
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.
