Principal’s Message

Lapstone Public School, established in 1971, is a dynamic school located in the lower Blue Mountains.  The school is well supported by the wider community and is committed to developing each student’s potential and providing an education that prepares children for their future. Lapstone PS supports and caters to students with a wide range of abilities including gifted and talented students. The school performs well above the state average in literacy and numeracy. 

The school highly prioritises student wellbeing and we aim for each of our students to enjoy personal success and to thrive within a school they feel strongly connected to. Our wellbeing policy reflects the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) philosophy and sits within a KidsMatter framework.

Lapstone Public School has an outstanding tradition in the Creative and Performing Arts and languages. We recognise that music education promotes discipline, improves students’ language and reasoning skills and self esteem which in turn increases engagement in their learning and school life and it’s fun! We have an Opera House and Junior Choir, a school band, ukulele  groups, instrument and dance lessons. The school has a languages program whereby students are taught a language other than English for a semester each year.

Children have the opportunity to take part in PDHPE lessons each week.  Our Sport program provides 2 hours of fitness, strength, skill coordination, health and nutrition each week, incorporating every outcome in the PDHPE syllabus. Our School provides a variety of sport programs which include School and PSSA soccer and netball, school and representative cricket, School AFL, gymnastics and modified softball, athletics and swimming.

Our school is a leader in sustainable environmental practices and we encourage stewardship of our environment with all of our students. Lapstone PS offers extensive extra-curricular programs provided by expert teachers. These activities include: Art Club, Drama Club, Debating Teams, Public Speaking, Environment and Garden Club, Coding, SRC (Student Representative Council), Library Monitors and Mathematics Olympiad.

We encourage and enjoy partnership with our local Darug Aboriginal community. Our school promotes the protection of our native animals and provides opportunities for our students to learn more about the Darug People’s culture, language and customs.

The vision for Lapstone Public School is to promote respectful, future focussed and creative citizens.
