Avoca Beach Public School is a comprehensive K-6 primary school on the Central Coast of NSW. Our school population of 520 students, including 19 students of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent, is accommodated in 20 classes and supported by a Principal, a Deputy Principal, four Assistant Principals and thirty two teaching, support and office staff.
Our vision is Avoca Beach Public School is committed to providing a safe and caring environment where individuals are respectful, responsible and strive for their personal best. Our innovative, collaborative and inclusive culture empowers and supports every learner.
The school receives additional socio economic and Aboriginal funding through the resource allocation model (RAM) and implements a number of focus programs including Teaching Early Numeracy (TEN), Taking Off With Numeracy (TOWN) and Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL).
In 2015, we began our involvement in the Language, Learning and Literacy (L3) professional learning program. A culture of ongoing improvement and an explicit focus on quality professional learning in differentiation, responding to data, enrichment and extended learning, fluid and flexible grouping and technology will ensure the application of best practice to every student learning experience.
Our students are involved in a large variety of extra-curricula activities including inter school sport competitions, dance, public speaking, debating, chess, photography, choir, band, strings, creative and performing arts and Tournament of the Minds.
We have a valued, consultative partnership with our Aboriginal community and the Tjudibaring AECG. We are an active member of the ‘Kincumba’ Learning Community, a group of outstanding schools focussed on providing a strong, rich K-12 experience. Schools work together to deliver excellent transition and professional learning programs which support the sharing of expertise across our community of schools. This ensures our students are settled, confident and ready to learn when they move to high school.
The school enjoys a strong partnership with our wonderful P&C. They support educational programs through money raised and provide an avenue for whole school community input into school policy and decision making. Our parents are actively involved in class literacy and numeracy programs, sport and extra-curricula activities and work alongside school staff to create a true community school.
