School details

Wytaliba Public School is a small multistage K-6 school in the beautiful forests of the Great Dividing Range between Glen Innes and Grafton. The school was destroyed in the bushfires of 2019 and the new rebuild includes lovely new classrooms, a library, landscaping and two playgrounds. An all-purpose sports court is being installed soon.

Our school provides an excellent education for the students from the community of Wytaliba and the surrounding areas. The multistage class provides individualised education programs with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy. Students at Wytaliba are encouraged to develop a love of learning, self-confidence and strong personal values. These together with sound academic skill, provide a foundation for happy productive lives.

Parents and the community members demonstrate confidence in the education and care provided to students. They are strong supporters of the school through the P&C fundraising events.
