Orange

Orange focussed on the development of explicit pedagogy through professional learning in deep mathematical knowledge and embedding '8ways of Aboriginal learning'.

The Orange Cluster consists of three primary schools (links go to school sites):

  • Orange Public - enrolment of just over 620 with about 60 Aboriginal students
  • Orange East Public - enrolment of just over 620 with about 60 Aboriginal students
  • Calare Public - 640 enrolments with about 60 of these Aboriginal.

Orange Public School is the Key School for the Cluster. All schools are situated in the city of Orange which is in rural NSW and located in the Central Tablelands 260 km west of Sydney. Orange is known as colour city with four distinct seasons. Its population is about 39,400. It features many historic buildings and key industries include agriculture, mining, health and education.

The original inhabitants of the Orange area are the Wiradjuri people. Orange was the destination for many Aboriginal families from around 43 north west NSW towns who were resettled as part of a federal government program in the 1970s. As a result, Orange has a very diverse Aboriginal population.
