About our school

Marsden Road Public School was established in 1962 and is built on the traditional lands of the Cabrogal of the Darug Nation. The school serves a diverse community, 86% of whom come from a language background other than English. The school is proud of its varied multicultural population, with 57 cultural backgrounds represented. Approximately 20% of our total student enrolment is made up of people who have been through the refugee experience. Approximately 67% of students have been speaking English for 3 years or less. These students are supported by additional specialist staffing.

In 2017, Marsden Road Public School became an Early Action for Success (EAfS): Phase 2 school, which is part of the department’s implementation of the NSW Literacy and Numeracy Strategy 2017-2020. EAfS aims to improve students’ literacy and numeracy skills through a targeted approach in the early years of learning.

Our teachers work collaboratively to develop and implement engaging and challenging learning programs for all students. This is achieved within a context of a positive and safe learning environment. Teachers aim to equip students with the foundation skills necessary for lifelong learning. Enrichment and extracurricular activities offered include leadership programs, choir, dance, drama, sport, debating, public speaking and environmental education.

The school's core values are for students to be safe, to be respectful and to be learners.
