Carcoar Public School is situated in the historic village of Carcoar within walking distance to the small but growing village nestled on the banks of the Belubula River. We are located 13km from our nearest township of Blayney and 50km from Bathurst.
We have historic school buildings and spacious school grounds to learn and play in. Since 2020, all classrooms have been updated with modern and flexible furniture to better meet the needs of students. Our school library is well resourced, and we utilise Google Chromebooks and MLD’s to engage with technology.
Our school community values our work that we complete everyday as we embrace a culture of high expectations and ensure our students are at the centre of all decisions.
We embrace a range of extracurricular activities such as Music by Orange Conservatorium of Music, Specialist Dance Teacher, OZ Harvest Cooking Initiative, Sporting Schools Australia, School Swimming and Before School Care to provide a holistic approach to learning.
We work in partnerships to build collaboration and engagement across education communities such as the Bathurst Learning Alliance, Heritage Country Schools and other small school alliances.
For the next four years, our school will work towards the following directions:
Strategic Direction One: Student Growth and Attainment
Strategic Direction Two: High Expectations and Collaborative Practices
We have committed our financial and human resources to student individual needs and the professional learning for our staff so that our students exceed the system and network negotiated targets for improvement. We consistently evaluate and monitor our progress towards improvement for both students and staff and communicate and share our successes regularly with our school community.
"Out of the Past | Into the Future as we strive for Excellence and Equity as a School Community"
