About our school

"Unlocking the Brilliance in Each of Us."

We acknowledge the Darkinjung people as the traditional custodians of the land on whichour school is built and where our children and young people learn each school day.

Wadalba Community believes in creating opportunity to unleash student talent as the first step, and then scaffolding support for students as needed. Our school vision is "Unlocking the brilliance in each of us".

We are proud to be a comprehensive K-12 community school. We currently have generally increasing enrolments, with over 300 students in our primary section and over 1300 students in our secondary section, which allows us to offer a broad range of learning programs. We are an inclusive school. Around 13% of students identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.

As a relatively younger school, we are proud of the contemporary teaching and learning practices that we promote and continue to develop, including opportunities to draw on expertise K-12. The school has many specialist facilities which support delivery of a diverse, quality curriculum program, including a recording studio, aquaponics centre and agriculture plot, vocational education facilities and dance studio.

Flagship programs include AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), STEaM, TSP (Targeted Sports Program) and CAPA GATS (Creative And Performing Arts Gifted and Talented) as well as a broad range of co curricula and extra curricula clubs and activities.

We also work closely with community to support cultural affirmation, encourage student involvement in a range of co curricula groups/ opportunities.

The school is located in the Wyong Local Government Area and works closely as part of the Wadalba Local Management Group that partner with our secondary. These schools, covering established and newer suburbs, are Woongarrah PS, Kanwal PS, Warnervale PS, Tuggerawong PS and Tacoma PS. We also work closely with our neighbouring high schools and are part of the Central Coast Secondary and Primary School networks. The school is placed in the centre of the suburb and is well supported by families and the community. The P&C is active, including operating the canteens, uniform shop and hosting an annual markets day.

The whole school community, involving students, staff, parents, P&C and the local AECG, was consulted in a thorough situational analysis followed by the development of strategic improvement plan. High level areas for continuous improvement include creating opportunity to unleash student talents as a first step (Flourish) and then to provide support as required (Nurture). Key focus areas include strengthening teacher-student-family partnership to support individual aspiration; student led learning and high quality teaching.
