Tallong Public School was established in 1865 and continues to serve a small rural community. Family values and beliefs, quality teaching and the latest in information technology enhance educational outcomes for all our students. Equity Program Funding has been used to support literacy and numeracy initiatives in all the key learning areas. Today the children are encouraged to view education as a life long learning experience, the school as a place of friendship and exploration and the staff as trusted partners in learning. The school community ensures that every child is successful in their learning with parents actively involved in education.
Currently Tallong Public School has students divided into three composite classes. Small class sizes enable individualised instruction. The younger class has students from Kindergarten to Year 1. The middle class has students from Year 2 to Year 3. The senior class has students from Year 4 to Year 6.
Classes benefit from the use of technology and have interactive white boards.The library has a connected classroom and interactive white board which enables access to many wonderful IWB programs. The classes also benefit from having access to laptop computers, desktop computers, and - new this year - iPads for student use.
Tallong Public School has wonderful facilities including a children's playground, a tennis court and cricket pitch. There is lots of play equipment for students to play on in the adventure playground. The oval has football posts and soccer nets.
Tallong Public School participates in various activities with other small schools in the Wingecarribee Region and also the Goulburn Region. Tallong Public School has the benefit of good relationships with both regions and this enables the students to participate in a wider range of activities.
