Thurgoona Public School provides a caring atmosphere where children, parents and the community share in the learning process.

Children derive enjoyment through participation and involvement in a variety of activities, which allow standards of excellence to be attained, according to the stages of individual development.

Our highly experienced and enthusiastic teaching and support staff promote and develop-

  • Foundations for life-long learning
  •  Leadership skills and social responsibility
  • Successful sporting teams with a focus on a healthy lifestyle

We encourage the children in our care to adopt the school's motto - Learn to live and Live to learn.
