About our school

Toongabbie East Public School is a small metropolitan school. Although situated geographically close to the hub of Parramatta City, Toongabbie East Public School is set back from main highways and bordered by the Toongabbie Creek, which provides a rurallike feel to the school. From 2015, the school has steadily grown from 55 students to 101 in 2021. There is a diverse student cohort with 30% from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background and 65% from a background where English is an additional language or dialect. The most prominent languages are Aboriginal-English, Tamil, Gejurati, Arabic, Dinka, Mandarin, Telugu, Cantonese and Samoan. Our school is expected to grow as the broader community experiences growth in the development of high and medium density housing.

There is a long day care centre on the school grounds, with preschool and before and after school care programs. Our school has 3 Support Unit classes along with 4 mainstream classes. We are fortunate to have spacious grounds including a full sized soccer oval and a refurbished basketball court. TEPS has just completed our yarning circle for outdoor learning with large grassed areas and trees for shade. Our school is well appointed, with a large library, connected classrooms, an art/sensory room and an iPad for each student to enhance the learning within the classroom.

At Toongabbie East Public School, we believe every child should be continually improving in a high expectation environment that encompasses a collaborative, holistic, multidimensional approach to implementing evidence-based change that both challenges and supports individual student growth. Our vision is to empower students to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value knowledge and skills that will support them, as life-long learners, to participate in and contribute positively to society. Every student in our school is known, valued and cared for and achieves with pride. We promote a family-style environment that allows our teaching and administrative staff to get to know each student on an individual basis with an aim of developing within them a desire to achieve their personal best to gain a sense of worth, identity and independence. You will also notice a positive feel and respectful culture at our school.

We invite you to come and experience our welcoming and friendly community feel school.
