Barrack Heights Public School is located within the Shellharbour City Council and currently caters for 260 primary students. The committed and experienced staff work in co-operation with the community to provide a positive environment for our students to achieve their potential. This is reflected not only in the full and active curriculum focussed upon literacy, numeracy and student welfare but also, in the breadth of sporting, artistic and strong values-based learning experiences provided for our students.

Our pupils come from diverse multicultural backgrounds and the school is committed to promoting the importance of cultural diversity through units of work that develop understanding of cultural, linguistic and religious difference and explicitly address issues of racism and discrimination. The school also has a significant Aboriginal student population and there is a crucial focus maintained on addressing the needs of these students, celebrating success and ensuring that Aboriginal culture and history are taught throughout the school in appropriate areas.

The staff is dedicated to engaging in professional learning activities in a range of areas in order to further enhance their skills and maintain a sound understanding of the latest pedagogical technology. The school undertakes rigorous self-evaluative procedures throughout each year so as to continue to effectively address the needs of its staff and students and assess the direction the school will be taking in the future.
