Berrigan Public School’s goal is to develop students who are self-motivated learners who work both co-operatively and independently whilst striving to reach their full potential. Staff are committed to students’ development of their whole being — academically, culturally, physically, socially and morally.
The implementation of personalised learning, highly qualified teaching and support staff, excellent resources, a supportive parent and wider community provide an environment conducive to achieving excellence for all students.
Programs and learning opportunities that focus on the arts, environment, technology, healthy life styles, leadership, sport, resilience and appreciation of others are evident across the school.
The school has a very supportive and hard working Parents and Citizens Association and the school endeavours to promote a strong partnership between home and school to ensure the best possible outcomes for our students.
There is strong support from the local community, whose members generously share their various skills, knowledge and talents with both staff and students. The school plays an important role in the community by being involved in public speaking competitions, CWA and community presentations, attending Anzac Day marches and visiting hospital and day care centres.
The students, parents and staff are justifiably proud of our school and we all look forward to you joining us and becoming part of the Berrigan Public School Community. For all enquiries, please contact principal Gayle Andriske on 5885 2209.
Berrigan Children’s Centre
Berrigan Children’s Centre Association Incorporated (BCCA) is a community owned and operated early childhood service that has been providing affordable, quality care and education for almost 18 years.
Its educators and staff provide a welcoming, supportive and caring environment for children, their families and the broader community.
The holistic approach to teaching and learning under the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) allows the centre to cater to each individual child’s physical, personal, social, emotional, spiritual wellbeing and cognitive learning needs. A three and four year-olds preschool program is run by a qualified teacher, and there’s also care for children aged six weeks-old to five years old and after school and vacation care for 5-12 year-olds.
The outdoor play space means children are directly engaged with the environment on many levels.
The centre is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5.30pm, and new enrolments are welcome. Drop in to the centre at 17-19 Stewart St, Berrigan or phone 5885 2324.
