Orientation program

Starting school is an extremely important step for both you and your child. To achieve this goal, we implement an extensive information and orientation program, an ongoing buddy system, and a welcoming approach to your child's first day of school. At Earlwood Public School we aim to ensure that your child feels happy and safe from their very first day. We will assist parents to determine their child's readiness for school. View our 'orientation program' page for more information.

Opportunity classes

Opportunity classes (OC)  are academic classes for Year 5 and Year 6 gifted and talented students. They provide intellectual stimulation and a rich educational environment. Since 1997 Earlwood Public School has had one OC class in Year 5 and one in Year 6. Children admitted to these classes come from the areas of Earlwood, Punchbowl, Belmore, Lakemba, Campsie, Arncliffe and Marrickville. Before being placed in OC, students should take an opportunity class placement test. The results of this test, combined with school assessment and other information about academic merit, will form the basis of any offer made by a selection committee. Children in the OC classes study basic skills in the six key learning areas and participate in all school activities. In addition they focus on creative and critical thinking activities which develop higher order thinking skills.
