Find out more about what your child will learn at our school.

The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) is responsible for the curriculum, Kindergarten to Year 12, for all NSW schools.

For the primary years, NESA develops syllabuses for all subjects in 6 key learning areas:

  • creative arts
  • English
  • human society and its environment (HSIE)
  • mathematics
  • personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE)
  • science and technology.

Some primary schools may also offer languages.

NSW schools also offer special religious education and special education in ethics via approved providers, where available.

Like all NSW schools, we have developed teaching and learning programs to suit our local context and the needs of our students.

Maraylya Public School also offers opportunities for students to display their creative side on public occasions such as:

Synergy dance festival

Maraylya Public School was well represented at the synergy dance festival in 2016. This is a prestigious festival many schools audition to be a part of. It is held each year in June, and is held at the Evan theatre, Penrith. The festival has been running now for 28 years!

The Kindergarten dance group performed to Bobby Darin's popular song "splish splash". They were a hit with the audience as they showed off their moves!

Our Year 2 to 6 dance group, made up of 24 boys and girls, performed smoothly to Michael Buble's "come fly with me." They looked wonderful in costumes made by dedicated parents and grandparents.

Education week performances

Maraylya Public School had 4 groups travel to the Richmond marketplace to perform during our education week celebrations.

Congratulations to our 2 dance groups "splish splash" and "come fly with me." Our choir performed 2 songs, "ain't no mountain high enough" and "blue moon/do you wanna dance". Our drummers performed "rhythmic beats."
