Goonengerry Public School


Term 4 is now well underway with our new targeted literacy and numeracy sessions show- ing amazing results with the children already.

Our fabulous P&C will be holding a Community Garage Sale on Saturday, 14 November at school from 9am til 1pm. An encore performance of our much talked about ValleyFest item will be held during the day. Stalls are available to hire for $5 with proceeds from the stall go back to the stallholder. Second-hand goods, bric-a-brac, fresh produce, handmade goods, plants etc – all welcome!


While our official Kindergarten Orientation sessions conclude on 5 November always feel free to call or drop in anytime. We also offer individual sessions for children who would benefit from more time spent in the classroom before beginning school next year. To arrange additional times please call.

Our flourishing Kitchen Garden continues to provide an abundance of produce which is turn is supporting our weekly cooking class and providing delicious meals for our students each Wednesday.

End of Year Concert preparations have begun with our community concert to be held
on Thursday, 3 December showing off the instrumental, vocal and acting talents of our students.

This year’s Swimming Scheme will again be held at Goonellabah Indoor Pool during Week 6. Our one week intensive indoor program is a wonderful sun safe option for students and less disruptive to school routines and learning time.

Our combined Small Schools Gala Day program continues with T20 Blast Cricket this term. It will be run specifically for our Valley of Small Schools by Milo Cup Cricket NSW.

The beautiful Goonengerry Playgroup continues each Thursday morning from 9am. We always welcome new families to come along and join us for a cuppa.
