Blackville Public School
Blackville Public School is a geographically isolated school located on rich farming land in the Liverpool Plains. The current enrolment of 9 students are drawn from the village and nearby farming properties. The school has a history of excellence producing confident, well rounded young people who have gone on to achieve great things. It aims to nurture lifelong learners who are never disadvantaged by their isolation. Blackville Public School is committed to providing a personalised and quality education within an inclusive and supportive environment. The school motto ‘Strive to Achieve’ is a belief that encompasses academic work, sporting successes and personal growth, all of which reflect 21st century learning.
The funds received from the BAMD enable the employment of a second staff member four days a week which reduces class size and ensures explicit quality teaching and learning addressing stage appropriate outcomes for our students.
