Are you thinking of relocating your family to the Quirindi region? Quirindi and the surrounding communities – including Werris Creek, Currabubula, Caroona, Spring Ridge, Wallabadah and Willow Tree – have some brilliant schools, with wonderful teachers, fun sporting events and top-notch educational opportunities. Read on for the latest news around our local schools!
Quirindi Public School
The primary school kids at Quirindi Public have certainly been busy in the last few months! School events have included the Cross Country, annual Swimming Carnival (a competitive but fun day for all involved!), a group of talented young pianists and vocalists competing in the Gunnedah Eisteddfod, and the wonderful “Starry Night”, with kids bundled up in their winter woolies to gaze at the stars, learn about astronomy and enjoy a yummy campfire supper! Quirindi Public School is located on Munro St, Quirindi. Check out their website for enrolment info and all their latest news.
Quirindi High School
Senior QHS students Britnee Hyde, Jade Henderson, Ethan Mangles and Casey Miller represented our region at the Blacktown City Festival on 31 May, riding the Liverpool Plains Shire Council float in the festival parade and manning a stand promoting “The Good Life” here in the Quirindi area. Mid-year reports and parent-teacher interviews are in full swing, with a promising group of senior students currently working hard towards their HSC. Coming up on June 12, QHS will hold their annual Athletics Carnival and later this month, a group of 100 students from Bellingen will visit QHS for the Beau Valley Shield sporting and academic competition. You can contact the Quirindi High School Office on (02) 6746 1177 for enrolment information, or visit them on Hill Street, Quirindi.
St Joseph’s Primary School
St Joseph’s Primary is a small Catholic school that offers a nurturing and supportive education for all students. In May, St Joseph’s hosted the Diocesan Cross Country Carnival at the Quirindi Showground with 500 students and their families in attendance. The first State Of Origin match on 28 May was a great school fundraiser for St Joseph’s, with the game shown on the big screen at the Royal Theatre while viewers enjoyed a pizza dinner. Visit St Joseph’s online or give the Office a call on (02) 6746 1033.
Willow Tree Public School
A small, friendly community primary school located on Merriwa Road, Willow Tree. Year 5 & 6 students are currently involved in the Warrah Creek Hall play “Zinderella of Warranella” – the first performance last month was so successful that a second run has been announced for 26th June! June is jam-packed for Willow Tree, with the Athletics Carnival, Science Discovery Van visit and school photos all coming up! The school is also currently planning an interactive, innovative Technology Room, including iPads, new computers, SmartBoards and more.
