Leeton Public School provides a wonderful learning environment for the students in our care. We are indeed fortunate to work with terrific kids who receive the best possible support from teachers, parents and carers. At LPS the staff works exceptionally hard to provide a diverse range of opportunities to all.
Numeracy and literacy are key academic focus areas and there are a number of successful programs operating within the school to cater for student development in these areas as well as the other Key Learning Areas. Programs include L3, L3 Stage 1. Reading Recovery. Ten and Town as well as Focus on Reading.
We believe in providing students with a 'well rounded' education and as a result a vast range of other opportunities are provided. We have an excellent reputation in sporting participation and results. Fitness and healthy lifestyle choices are key components of our school operation.
LPS offers students opportunities in dance, drama, singing, debating, chess, eco-gardening and other cultural pursuits. Recent representation in Schools Spectacular, Riverina Dance Festival, KROP, Premiers Spelling Bee, Premiers Debating Challenge and chess tournaments highlights this.
All of our classrooms have interactive whiteboards and we also have access to video conferencing facilities so as to enable students to be at the 'cutting edge' of learning. Recently students attended a 'virtual excursion' to The Great Barrier Reef. All teachers have been and continue to attend professional development activities so as to stay abreast of the most up-to-date teaching methods.
The school aims to provide quality education with an experienced, dedicated staff strongly committed to high standards, personal excellence and modern trends. It is situated in close proximity to tertiary and secondary facilities, sharing a multipurpose centre with the high school.
