Small class sizes allow for effective relationships to be established between staff, students and their families. We have a strong emphasis on student wellbeing, the delivery of quality differentiated literacy and numeracy programs as well as a commitment to delivery programs that demonstrate a culturally rich curriculum.

Staff at Wilcannia WCS are committed to continuous improvement enhanced by targeted professional learning, with opportunities existing for staff to be involved with future focused learning, STEM, cultural programs, outdoor education, and school promotion.

All staff at Wilcannia CS are flexible within their roles to support the individual needs of students, ensure the smooth running of the day, and coordinate school events.
