Position Information

Murrumburrah Public School has a proud history of providing over 150 years of quality school experience for the children in the townships of Harden, Murrumburrah and surrounding areas. It has a student population of 200 whose learning needs are met in 10 classes. Many students come from low socio-economic backgrounds and the nearest regional centre is 150 kilometres away. 30% of students have Aboriginal heritage and less than 1% of students speak English as their second language.

Our school motto is 'Learn To Live'. This motto underpins all we do. At Murrumburrah Public School; Respect, responsibility and empathy is driven by Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL); strong relationships with families and the community are facilitated through our 'open-door' policy and a very active P&C; and highly successful programs such as music, dance, public speaking, sport and visual arts ensure we are able to deliver our visionary education.

Murrumburrah Public School receives additional equity funds through its Resource Allocation Model (RAM). This funding plays a pivotal role in the staffing and resourcing of the school to raise the learning outcomes and lift educational standards for all students so that they have the best chances and choices in life. The programs provide additional classroom teachers, support for all students, valuable teaching resources and teacher professional learning. The school is also part of the Early Action for Success (EAfS) initiative. As an EAfS school we are provided with an Instructional Leader to ensure best practice and to monitor the performance of each student K-3.
