This year our Middle School was recognised at state level as an Outstanding Program. It is also highlighted in national publications on middle schooling as an exemplary model. The school enjoys strong community support and respect. Centred in a wheat and canola growing area, the school draws students from both the town and surrounding districts. 

It is well maintained and has excellent facilities. The school's Principal Mr Barry Pokoney was this year's recipient of the NSW Parents and Citizens Association's Secondary Principal of the Year Award. The school prides itself on its strong links with parents. 

Regular contact from the school in the form of parent/teacher evenings, Year nights, information nights, newsletters, letters of commendation and concern, and phone calls from staff all ensure that parents are well informed on the progress of their children and school life in general. Parents are encouraged to visit the school and home visits are made.
