Welcome to Berinba Public School

Our school is a caring, exciting and proud establishment that prides itself on providing students with an excellent education built upon individual student wellbeing, self-esteem and enjoyment of learning. Our staff are strongly supportive of educating the whole child whilst always striving for educational excellence.

Our school has sound overall results in both school based and National testing in the areas of Mathematics and English.

Our work in the Creative and Practical Arts is of an extremely high standard with our school choirs selected in the Schools Spectacular on 12 consecutive occasions. Our curriculum offerings in Science, Technology, and Engineering include Robotics and coding classes for all children from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Our History and Geography work covers extensively the pre-colonial history of Australia. Aboriginal Dance, Language, and Cultural studies are taught weekly to all students.

Our school has implemented the KidsMatter program to empower every child to self regulate their behaviours and emotions. Staff have been trained to work with students in building resilience and inner mental health strength.

The school offers a wide range of sporting opportunities from Tennis to Soccer, Netball to Rugby League. The school enters the statewide primary school sport Knockout competitions and participates in the Sporting Schools program offered by the federal government.

Children will participate in a wealth of excursion opportunities over their life at Berinba. Overnight camps and experiences at educational and recreational facilities are included in Yrs 3 – 6. The school effectively uses the wonderful educational excursion opportunities offered in the ACT on a regular basis.

Our school is a proud member of the Binit Binit Learning Community and along with our other 19 local school partners offer a wide variety of Gifted and Talented programs across the entire curriculum. Through the Learning Community students work with children of similar interest/ability to develop their skills and expertise in the Arts, Sciences, Robotics, Maths, Writing, and a host of other creative areas of schooling.
