Selective school applications

Kooringal High School is the only school in the Wagga Wagga region that offers partially selective programming for some of its students. These students participate in selective English, Mathematics and Science classes. The intention of partially selective high schools is to provide an environment for academically gifted students to thrive with other classmates at their standard.

Entry to the partially selective program requires early application followed by assessment for selection. For more information, go to the Kooringal High School website and review information about selective high schools in New South Wales.

School zoning

Most high schools have designated local enrolment areas, with students enrolling in the relevant school based on their home address. Schools may accept enrolments from outside their designated area if places are available.

Using your home address and this school finder, you can determine your designated school.

The School Excellence Framework

Our commitment to providing the best possible education for your child is supported by The School Excellence Framework. The framework is used to inform school planning in the development of a clear and unique vision for each school and their community

Student wellbeing and support

We are committed to providing a safe, happy and productive environment for your child. We support a number of initiatives and strategies to ensure that all students are given the best opportunity to learn and enjoy their time at high school. 

These include:  

  • The Wellbeing Framework for Schools – this framework provides a commitment to wellbeing that enables schools to support students to connect, succeed and thrive at every stage of their development and learning. The framework recognises that schools have a pivotal role to play in connecting character development in children and young people to individual and collective wellbeing, which in the longer term will shape the values and attitudes of the society in which we all live.
