At Waratah Public School we care about all aspects of our students' welfare and learning.

We believe that students have the right to feel safe and secure. This includes physical, emotional and technological safety.

We maximise educational outcomes for all students by focusing on learning that is purposeful, challenging and rewarding. Through encouraging creativity and fostering technological skills, we nurture creative problem solvers who can adapt and thrive in an ever changing world.

Staff at our school encourage positive behaviour and relationships by fostering:

  • enthusiasm for learning
  • respect for our school and each other
  • responsibility.
