Zig Zag Public School is located in Oakey Park, Lithgow. The school previously known as New Vale Public School was originally established in 1891. The picturesque parkland environment of the school is a key feature, with the playground including a new tennis court and extensive play equipment across three grassed levels.
At our school, we aim to provide an excellent, balanced education for all students in our care. The K-6 programs provided are based on excellence and equity and we strive to provide and achieve high standards of education for all students. The development of social skills, courtesy, manners, concern for others, tolerance and acceptance of others and self discipline remain high on the school's agenda. The school offers a strong student leadership and peer support program which extends into the Western Gateway Educational Community of schools.
The school has a long and proud tradition of sporting achievements, significantly in hockey. This is balanced by participation in programs such as the Premier's Reading Challenge. Our school programs have a strong environmental focus working closely with local groups such as Land Care.
Zig Zag Public School enjoys a strong sense of community which is actively promoted and valued.
