Baradine Central School is a small inclusive K-12 school in a rural setting that is integral to the local community. The school features diverse educational opportunities, outstanding resources and integrated technology with very dedicated and caring staff and supportive P&C. There are approximately 130 students from Kindergarten to Year 12 with more students in secondary than primary.
The school’s motto is ‘We do not learn for school but for life’, emphasising and valuing life-long learning. There is strong support from the community and a focus on improving the learning outcomes and well-being of all students and the development of the whole child. We believe there is a strong relationship between the academic, physical, mental and socio-cultural needs of students, and that they are of equal importance in ensuring successful educational outcomes.
The core values of Baradine Central School are respect, quality, participation and safety. The school is supported by equity funding that addresses the school’s unique context or being rural, remote with low soci-economic status and significant percentage (51%) of the student enrolment identifying as Indigenous. Continuing programs supporting the development of every learner include Early Action for Success, Quality Teaching Supported Students, Positive Behaviour for Learning and learning cohorts for Junior, Middle and Senior schools.
