Wyong Public School was established in 1888 and relocated to spacious new buildings on its present site in 1978. The 21 classrooms all connect to large indoor areas suitable for art, craft, cooking etc. Each pair of classrooms shares loft space and two withdrawal rooms for small group activities. The school has a library-information centre, a computer lab, three audio-visual rooms and a large hall with stage and lighting. Most students live locally in either government or low to middle income private housing. Some students travel considerable distances to attend the two O.C. classes for academically gifted students and the I.M. support class for students with mild learning disabilities. The very dedicated school staff is strongly committed to meeting the diverse needs of students through quality education programs. Emphasis is placed on student welfare and improving standards in literacy and numeracy. Staff and parent helpers also provide students with a wide range of opportunities to develop their interests and abilities in other areas. Many parents are unable to provide financial support to the school. Consequently, the school receives additional funds through what is to be known in 2001 as the Priority Schools Funding Program.
Students with disability and additional learning and support needs
The New South Wales Department of Education and Communities support students with disability and additional learning and support needs in public schools in a range of ways. This may include specialist support classes for students in regular and special schools; the Integration, Funding Support program which provides targeted funding for eligible students; and learning and support resourcing. Every regular public school in NSW receives a specialist teacher allocation and flexible funding based on the size of the school and the learning needs of their students.
You can discuss your child's learning needs and planning for their personalised learning and support with the principal of your child's school. For more information about the full range of support services in NSW public schools go to Disability, Learning & Support.
