Our school

"Creating a positive and dynamic learning community where all students strive to achieve their full potential to enable active participation in tomorrow's world" 

(School Vision Statement 2015-2017)

 

Our school offers a unique and innovative learning environment.  We are the only government school on the Central Coast which offers a Kindergarten to Year 12 curriculum.  Our students have the opportunity to interact and learn in a stimulating environment which focuses on the needs of the individual and the community.  As part of the Wadalba Schools Learning Community (WSLC), students from Warnervale, Woongarrah, Tuggerawong and Tacoma Public Schools benefit from a shared teaching experience.  This ensures that all students experience a seamless and enjoyable transition from primary school to high school.

We encourage the community to visit the school and observe the opportunities we offer our students.

"Creating a positive and dynamic learning community where all students strive to achieve their full potential to enable active participation in tomorrow's world" School Vision Statement

Wadalba Community School offers a unique and innovative learning environment. Wadalba is proud to be a comprehensive K-12 community school. The school was established in 2000 and in 2014 the Governor of NSW visited our school to help celebrate the first cohort of kindergarten students graduating Y12. We currently have over 200 students in our primary section and over 1100 students in our secondary section which allows us to offer a broad range of learning programs (for example, we literally run Rocket Science in as an elective in Y9).

As a relatively younger school, we are proud of the contemporary teaching and learning practices that we promote and continue to develop, including opportunities to draw on expertise K-12. The school has many specialist facilities which support delivery of a diverse, quality curriculum program, including a recording studio, aquaponics centre and agriculture plot, vocational education facilities and dance studio. Flagship programs include our Targeted Sports Program (TSP) and Creative And Performing Arts Gifted and Talented (CAPA GATS). We also work closely with community to support cultural affirmation, encourage student involvement in a range of co curricula groups/ opportunities. We are a PROUD school.

The school is located in the Wyong Local Government Area and works closely as part of the Wadalba Local Management Group schools that partner with our secondary. These schools, covering established and newer suburbs, are Woongarrah PS, Kanwal PS, Warnervale PS, Tuggerawong PS and Tacoma PS. We also work closely with our neighbouring high schools and are part of the Central Coast Secondary and Primary School networks.

The school is placed in the centre of the suburb and is well supported by families and the community. The P&C is active, including operating the canteens and uniform shop.
