Mendooran Central School is an innovative, small rural school serving a diverse community with enrolments of 114 students (of which 34.2% identify as Aboriginal) from Kindergarten to Year 12. MCS is located 328km from Newcastle and 74km from Dubbo.

The school draws its primary and secondary students from the immediate township and the surrounding area. We provide a quality K–12 education in an inclusive and supportive environment.

Consultation on decision making with the students, staff, parents and community is through collaborative practice, surveys, interviews and workshops. We strive to provide our staff and students with updated technology to ensure a collaborative, dynamic and an up-to-date learning environment.

Staff members focus on developing an individual commitment to learning with each and every student striving for excellence. We are continually striving to ensure that every student is known, valued and cared for in our school.

We ensure students have access to outside training providers to ensure a broader curriculum. The school is well supported by a School P&C and we are partners with the local preschool and wider community. Teacher housing may be available and this is subsidised at a rate of 50%.

At the end of 2020 we conducted a deep analysis of our school data to identify areas of strength and need. The consultation process included feedback through meetings, workshops and online surveys with all key stakeholders.

Our Situational Analysis indicated that areas of strength were growth in enrolments, wellbeing and human resources. Focus areas for the 2021-2024 Strategic Improvement Plan include student performance measures, particularly in Literacy and Numeracy, personalised learning and high-quality teaching and learning.
