At Middle Dural Public School we strive to provide a caring and challenging learning environment. We recognise that student learning best occurs when students are highly engaged, accept responsibility for their own learning and are supported at appropriate levels by teachers and parents.
Student Welfare is a priority with care of, and cooperation with, others emphasised. This is further supported by the very nature of our 'small' school which children enjoy attending and feel proud of. The holistic development of each child is nurtured through our programs which cater for intellectual, physical, social and emotional needs. At Middle Dural School we believe that great relationships make a school an excellent environment for learning and take pride in a school where parents are participants, where every child counts as an individual and where every child is known by every teacher.
Middle Dural Public School is located in the north-western suburbs of Sydney.
It is a small school set in a rural environment, surrounded by horse paddocks and orchards yet it is so close to the established suburbs of metropolitan Sydney. Spacious, grassed playing fields enhance the school buildings, promoting a very pleasant outlook and relaxed atmosphere.
The school has been providing education for the children of the community since 1891 Middle Dural School provides the advantages of a small school atmosphere where children get to know everyone in all grades. As a result, tolerance between children of different age groups is a key factor enabling children to interact and learn from each other.
Also opportunities for pupils to be involved in the daily running of the school allows for the development and acceptance of responsibility. From this experience, a strong, positive school spirit has evolved.
At Middle Dural School we are able to offer small classes, where the basic subjects are taught soundly by dedicated and enthusiastic staff. Pupils are treated as individuals and attention is given to small group and individual learning.
