Regional, rural and remote education in NSW
Over 40% of our schools are regional, rural or remote. This accounts for almost 25% of our students. We are working to ensure we are providing quality education to every student, in every school, everywhere.
Alumni Events Program
Financial support of up to $2,000 is available for regional high schools to host events where former students are invited to speak to current students about life after school.
