Teachers, parents, and students all work together in partnership to maintain high expectations, creating a positive environment where every student reaches their true potential and become confident, creative, self-directed, and successful learners to build our community for today and tomorrow.
Forbes North Public School is located on the land of the Wiradjuri Nation. We have a strong alignment with Forbes local AECG to guide and support culture, language and local knowledge. The school prides itself on its excellent wellbeing policies and practices.
Forbes North Public School is a focal point of the community and has many strong linkages including a well-developed “Link Up to School” transition program. This program runs all year providing students with an opportunity to become familiar with the school settings prior to school, forming strong bonds, allowing students to have the best start to kindergarten.
The school is proud of the burgeoning partnership that exists between home and school. A strong relationship has been formed with an energetic Parent & Citizens Association consisting of parents, caregivers, and the wider community. In partnership with the Schools as Community Centre we hold parent education classes to help parents and caregivers engage with their child’s learning both at school and at home.
Forbes North Public School has a distinguished Kitchen & Garden program. Students are exposed to positive nutritional foods, preparing meals and hands-on experiences. Students learn life skills through engaging lessons, making strong links to the literacy and numeracy curriculum.
Forbes North encourages all students to have high expectations of themselves and to continually be better than the person they were the day before.
