A message from Principal Anne Holden.
Trangie Central School is a small school of 220 students, catering for Kindergarten through to Year 12. We have high expectations and a culture of acceptance, tolerance and kindness.
The school’s ‘Well Being Policy’ is underpinned by positive value expectations to be safe and respectful learners. The policy includes programs to develop resilience at both Primary and Secondary levels, with our extra-curricular activities and ‘Interest Groups’ being an integral part of this.
Staff talent and dedication has been reflected in a wide and constantly growing range of diverse extra-curricular activities in sport and agriculture, along with the creative and performing arts
Coupled with a hugely successful sporting program, our instrumental music program, dancing, singing, art, debating and public speaking, all meet the creative needs of each child and feed the soul. Our students have endless opportunities to excel, develop self-esteem and promote well being.
The school has a fundamental belief in the importance of early intervention. The ‘Early Birds Transition To School’ Program is a cornerstone of this policy, and provides the opportunity for children in the year before they enrol in school to experience a morning of school each week with a qualified teacher.
This allows the children to become familiar with the expectations of school and to gain skills which will support both their learning and development once they enter Kindergarten.
This strong start is then continued by Early Action for Success (EAfS) which ensures quality teaching in both Literacy and Numeracy in K-2. It is underpinned by on-going professional learning in the L3 program for staff, with the support of a highly experienced instructional leader.

Trangie Central School has high academic aspirations and expectations. The focus on early intervention and on quality teaching and learning across the whole school is being rewarded with a steady trend upwards in NAPLAN results.
Our Western Access Program offers the opportunity to study a wide variety of Stage 6 subjects. This has resulted in the school successfully delivering, along with humanities subjects and vocational education, a full range of Mathematics, English and Science courses.
The P&C are active in supporting the school in improving facilities for our students, with extensive work in the primary playground being a good example of their dedication to our school.
Strong community connections are fostering respectful relationships between staff, students, their families and the wider community. Strong relationships are the key to our success and this makes Trangie Central School a great place to be.
Trangie Central School is committed to supporting the health and well being of the Trangie community and has a long and proud history of being a true community resource.
