James Busby High School

James Busby High School is situated in a fast growing area of south west Sydney. The school takes pride in its strong values driven welfare approach and its ability to cater for a diverse student population. It is a school where a strong harmony exists between people from different backgrounds and cultures. Attractive grounds are a feature of the school, highlighted by a number of refurbished and new structures. The school has excellent facilities including a more recently refurbished library, a new stage area in the hall, new shade shelters, a new gym, new science labs and a Trade Training Centre for Hospitatity. An extension of the front office and a refurbishment of the canteen and toilets has also greatly improved the facilities available to students, staff and the community. Our welfare system is based around the acronym PRAISE (positive relationships, respect, achievement, integrity, safety and equity) and underpins our approach to all facets of school life. As a comprehensive high school we take in all students from our local area and through quality teaching we take great pride in the fact that we consistently add value to our students in literacy, numeracy and a whole range of other areas. Our excellent teachers are the strongest feature of our school. We value the input from our community into the school especially our parents and other members of our school 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.

School Infrastructure NSW is pleased to advise that your school’s application for funding as part of the Cooler Classrooms Program has been successful. School Infrastructure NSW will be in contact to organise a date for the due diligence team to visit your school. Congratulations on your successful application. We look forward to working with you to provide better learning environments to improve educational outcomes.

Applications for the second round of funding are now closed.
