About our school

Mount Warrigal Public School proudly provides public education in a safe, supportive and technologically progressive learning environment. 

Established in 1967, our school is positioned in a large suburb in the city of Shellharbour. Caring and dynamic, experienced and new scheme teachers are committed to the emotional, social and academic success of every student. The school's focus is to maximise the learning outcomes for each student through providing quality teaching and learning programs. 

Kindness, safety, respect and fairness are the core values that underpin all interactions at Mount Warrigal Public School. The school has a 20% Aboriginal student enrolment and 15% of students have a multicultural background. 

In addition to its mainstream classes, the school integrates a two unit Preschool, providing quality education for children in the year before commencing kindergarten. The school site also encompasses two multicategorical classes, one moderate intellectual disability support class and an Early Intervention Unit. 

Our students enjoy additional benefits and support due to the outstanding fundraising and commitment of our active Parents and Citizens’ committee, who play an integral role and provide input into our school’s decision-making process. 
Mount Warrigal Public School students' are immersed in outstanding and innovative programs in literacy, numeracy, student leadership, Positive Behaviour for Learning, choir, public speaking, Aboriginal education, technology, sporting programs, and transition to kindergarten and high school to name a few. The school is currently participating in the Early Action for Success initiative. 

The development of the school vision statement by the whole school community provides strategic direction for all school initiatives. 

All students are encouraged to strive towards the school motto - "Aim Higher".
