About our school

Hannam Vale Public School is located ten kilometres west of the Pacific Highway, approximately half way between Taree and Port Macquarie on the Mid North Coast of NSW. Established in 1892, transition and change within the community has cumulatively maintained this small school's prominent role in its local community.

Hannam Vale Public School offers students quality educational programs with the highest expectations of individual and collective success. The genuine relationship between staff,students and family, ensures our school provides a safe, positive, caring and socially inclusive learning environment.

Hannam Vale offers unique and diverse learning opportunities, catering for the learning needs of every student. In 2015 the school has 17 students, guided by a Teaching Principal, Temporary Teacher and Part Time Learning and Support Teacher.

The strength of the strong community and family values is reflected in the ongoing support of all aspects of school life afforded by the wider community.

The history of Hannam Vale Public School "vividly illustrates the pioneering spirit and innovative capacity of Australians" (Don Hopkins, Hannam Vale Public School CENTENARY, 1892 - 1992, page 3).

Hannam Vale Public School is a small rural school, which was established in 1892. It is located 12 kilometres west of the Pacific Highway, approximately half way between Taree and Port Macquarie. The school is situated in a very productive rural valley, traditionally involved in dairy farming and horticulture. Today rural properties include dairy farms, orchards, beef cattle and small mixed farming enterprises. The hospitality industry has also expanded. The school has a long history of community involvement and has a very strong and active P&C. In 2013, two multi-stage classes operate, K-2 and 3-6. There is a staff allocation for teaching principal, temporary teacher, administration manager and general assistant. The school is highly resourced focussing on technology, music and exploring programs to reflect learning in the 21st century.
