Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.

Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

Our uniform shop is open every Monday morning from 8.30am-9.30am. 
It is located on the left hand side of the school assembly hall.

Technology

Shelley Public School actively promotes the use of Technology in teaching in learning. Our purpose built computer lab allows for every student to have access to a computer.

All students benefit from lessons conducted with the use of Interactive Whiteboards (IWB) installed in every classroom, including our library, the connected classroom and now the music room as well. Thanks to the support of our P&C, we achieved our goal of having an interactive Whiteboard in every K-6 classroom during 2011.

During 2010 our new library was completed and now has its own mini lab of 15 networked computers for visiting classes. As well as this the library has a Connected Classroom installed, which allows a class to communicate in real time, via an audio-visual TV link, with other classes across the state. This new technology will allow students the opportunity to greatly widen their learning experiences. Adjoining the library is a smaller teaching room, which also has an IWB installed.

Our old library was converted into a special purpose learning area. The main room will also continue to have the existing Connected Classroom installation. This learning space also includes a mini lab, thanks to the generous support of our P&C.

Shelley PS is working towards our goal of having 3 desktops computers, in addition to an Interactive Whiteboard, operating in every classroom to help enhance and extend the learning of our students.

Since 2012 iPads have been steadily integrated into classroom teaching and learning. As of Term 3, 2017, we have 50 iPads that are utilised every day in our classes K-6 classrooms, to enrich student learning. All Stage 3 classrooms now have a dedicated set of their own in addition to these.

We are now looking to increase this even further to continue supporting 21st Century Learning skills across all KLA's.

In 2017, we finalised the installation of WIFI network across the entire school, allowing students and staff to access the school network (and filtered internet) remotely, from anywhere around the school.
