Additional School Information (Optional)

Blacktown North Public School is located in the middle of a light industrial area, bordered by two busy roads and two secondary schools. Most of the students reside in high density housing located to the south of the school, towards the centre of Blacktown. Our population is over 93% LBOTE, with students coming to us from birthplaces in more than 22 other nations.

Our parent/community supporters speak more than 35 different languages, some of which do not have a written form. Our school focus therefore revolves around the cores of Literacy and Numeracy and developing skills in the English language for students and parents.
