About our school

Adamstown Public School is situated in inner city Newcastle. The school is set in spacious grounds and serves a well–established and diverse community with people from a range of social and cultural backgrounds.

The school population of 370 students is drawn from a diverse local community with approximately 9% of students from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background and 10% of students with a language background other than English.

Adamstown Public School is committed to excellence in student learning and has high expectations for the learning and behaviour of all students. We take pride in the many academic, cultural and sporting opportunities we are able to offer our students.

Adamstown Public School, situated in a quiet area of the suburb of Adamstown, has strong links with the community it serves. The school reflects the diversity of the suburb in its multicultural make-up. Some twelve per cent of students come from a non-English speaking background while two per cent are Aboriginal. The school offers a curriculum embracing the six Key Learning Areas with extra-curricular activities providing a wide choice and opportunities to all students. The school also aims to teach students the values of tolerance and good citizenship. The interdependence of all stakeholders in school life is a real strength.
