Your school: Meadow Flat Public School


Meadow Flat PS has 52 students. The school has grown with a 65 per cent increase in enrolments over the past five years that has brought a third classroom into operation for the last two years. All students benefit from the group of eight schools in the Bathurst Small Schools network. They meet for PSSA team sports, PSSA carnivals, and stage-based excursions and camps. Staff across the network have strong professional development activities.

Extra needs-based funding has enhanced ways in which the school can support students’ individual learning needs. The school is using equity loadings to employ specialist staff to provide individual learning programs.
