About our school

Kariong is an excellent school, which strives every day to provide its students with "A View to the Future". The school is situated west of Gosford on the Central Coast Highway and is a proud member of the Kariong Mountains Learning Community. 

Kariong Public School was established in 1988 and has a current enrolment of 572 students, including 30 Aboriginal students and 73 students who have a language Background other than English (LBOTE). The school has a mix of experienced staff and early career teachers and is welcoming, friendly and focused on maintaining strong partnerships between staff, parents and students. The school caters for a diverse community and is well supported by an active Parents and Citizens’ Association. 

A strong focus on improving literacy and numeracy outcomes and integrating technology into teaching and learning are major aspects of school planning. The school implements Language, Learning and Literacy (L3) across Early Stage 1 and Year 1 and the Targeted Early Numeracy (TEN) program across Early Stage 1 and Stage 1. 

All students participate in technology classes either in the Computer Lab or in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) room. During STEM lessons students cover topics such as Robotics, Coding, Science and Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. 

Our school is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school. PBL is a school wide behaviour initiative that uses a whole school system to encourage positive behaviour from all students. Our school’s three core values are RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and PERSONAL BEST. 

We are establishing strong partnerships with our Aboriginal community and the local Cooinda AECG valuing the consultative partnerships that exist. 

Kariong Public School provides a variety of educational and extra-curricular experiences including a full range of PSSA teams, dance, choir, musical instruments, debating, writing, art, public speaking, the Premier's Reading Challenge and Digital Technologies, Science, English and Mathematics competitions.
