About our school

Wolumla Public School, established in 1882, has a strong tradition of quality teaching and learning as well as connection with its local community. The school motto 'Do Your Best' is a focus for the overall development of our students each year.

Our school is a wonderful example of how a strong and effective partnership between the school and the community can produce excellent results. Students are encouraged to participate in a broad range of activities that develop self-confidence and emphasise leadership and independence. Students are taught a sense of responsibility and caring attitude for themselves, other people and the environment. Student learning is supported by effective Literacy and Numeracy programs and students enjoy high levels of access to Information and Communication Technologies.

The promotion of Respect and Responsibility at Wolumla is through a number of programs that operate through the year. Our students are being taught to value their community and become active and caring citizens. Our Quality Start to School program specifically targets school values, rules, respect and responsibility. Our school values of Have a Go, Do Your Best, Treat Others as You Would Like to be Treated and Be Friendly are all underpinned by respect and responsibility. Parents can access our school through our school website:www.wolumla-p.schools.nsw.edu.au

Wolumla Public School has served the local community for well over 100 years. It is a school viewed as the centre of the village of Wolumla, is extremely well utilised by the wider community and enjoys excellent relationships with all local organisations and associations. Due to the unique conditions and the dedication of a very experienced staff, the development of the "whole child" is an implicit factor in the design and implementation of all school programs. A balance between educational and social development is viewed as imperative. The school currently receives additional Country Area Program funding to compensate for rural isolation. The funding greatly assists in the provision of educational experiences and programs that would otherwise be unavailable to students.
