ABOUT US

 

Grafton Public School, a NSW Government school, was established in 1852 and has a proud tradition of pursuing academic, sporting and cultural excellence. Our school has a current enrolment of 667 children. We have a split site school with our Kinder and Yr1 students on their own campus situated in Mary  Street, a short walk from our primary campus located on Queen Street. Our support units integrate mainstream with students of special needs in a caring and nurturing environment.

 

All classrooms at GPS are air conditioned, have interactive whiteboards, and an integrated sound system. IPads are available for use for K - 1 years. The Infants Campus employs both wired and wireless technologies. Classrooms for Grades K - 1 have infra red hearing/speaker systems.All classes 2 - 6 have Windows Laptops as part of their classroom technologies and the Primary Campus also employs both wireless and wired technologies.All classes have access to well equipped computer labs on both the Mary Street and Queen Street sites.

 

We have an active Creative Arts Program within the school. This includes a large concert band, choir and dance groups which regularly perform intrastate. Over a third of our students are active participants in one of these groups.

 

Our hall is fully air conditioned and multimedia ready with data projector, networked PC and has wireless access with internet access for group lessons and assemblies, and has a modern sound system

.

Our library is well stocked and current, incorporating many different forms of media including wireless laptops for research activities.

 

We have extensive park like grounds with numerous plantings of large trees and shrubs as well as a 'bush tucker' area, a covered fish pond retreat and large vegetable garden.

 

Both of our campuses have play equipment which is fully compliant with Australian Safety Standards.

 

Our Primary Campus also has a full size basketball court which will be fully shaded in the near future.

 

The school recognises the importance of Aboriginal culture and traditions and recently opened a 'yarning circle' to be used as an outdoor learning area.
