At Singleton Heights Public School, our staff, students and community members work together for one common purpose – to fulfil the school’s vision of promoting a culture of school excellence where every child is a creative, confident, life-long learner and a respectful, responsible citizen.
Built on the land of the Wanaruah people, the school draws students from families living in Singleton Heights, Hunter View, Darlington and The Pinnacle. Many families are linked with the mining and rural industries or local services, while a Defence School Mentor supports families connected to the Singleton Army Barracks.
505 students are enrolled for 2023, with 93 students recognising their Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage. All students strive to achieve the school’s core values of Respect, Responsibility and Excellence with quality teaching and learning practices evident in every classroom.
The school has a talented, caring teaching staff, who are committed to an ethos of life-long learning. Collaborative and collegial practices contribute powerfully to a positive learning environment, where educational research, critical analysis and professional dialogue are highly valued within the school.
Students engage with a variety of curricular activities, with specific programs for sport, debating and public speaking. The school band is highly regarded within the community and students also enjoy performance opportunities for dance, choir and guitar. Environmental Education plays a significant role in the school’s extra-curricular programs.
All school programs and initiatives are well supported by an active parent community and P&C.
