Parent Feedback

  • As a mother of 3 children all with different needs I have had the opportunity to experience the great differences between some local schools. Barkers Vale School is a bit like the perfect beach you don't want to tell everyone about for fear of it getting overcrowded and losing the very thing that makes it so special. My youngest son was having some problems. The teachers at Barkers Vale looked for his strengths, kept giving him positive messages and encouragement and helped to build his self confidence. They seem to genuinely care about the growth and wellbeing of each child. When a teacher loves what they do it shows in every student.

  • I have been very happy with Barkers Vale School. Coming from home schooling my two eldest children I had concerns about a regular school environment for my youngest child. I have found the school staff to be helpful, compassionate, and committed to a supportive and caring learning environment. I greatly appreciate the fact that the school community is dedicated to environmental awareness.

  • Green day is an environmental awareness event at our school. it is a day for the whole school community to come together sharing food, products and ideas. This fundraising event would not be possible without the help and support from our P&C, teachers, students and caregivers. Thank you Barkers Vale Community.

Student Feedback

  • What I like about our school is that we are all very close like a family and there are no bullies. Everybody is really nice and kind. We have great teachers. Great facilities like our music room with Marimbas that we made and painted. Drums, guitars, pianos and lots more we also have beautiful rock and crystal buildings and we have a hall which we do gymnastics and public speaking in. We are very environmentally friendly with our veggie patch that we use for canteen on Mondays. This is what makes our school great!
