Central Schools were born out of the need to provide primary and secondary education to the students of the community in which they are located. Most of them originally began as primary schools until the expansion of secondary education allowed them to take on this role. With the introduction of years 7- 12, Central Schools developed a K-12 perspective which has been further developed. Most Central Schools now provide formal and informal education opportunities for all members of their community.
Did you know there are 62 Central Schools in NSW and that the NSW Teachers Federation has a Central Schools Committee?
