Celebrating 175 years of public education this Education Week

Primary school students playing with paper planes on their school playground.

Education Week is an annual celebration of NSW public education that recognises the achievements of our schools, teachers, and students.

This Education Week marks 175 years of public education in NSW. That's 175 years of our teachers and support staff playing a vital role in shaping the minds of future generations, ensuring they're well-prepared for success in all aspects of life. 

From Monday 31 July to 4 August, we're taking a moment to reflect and learn from our past, celebrate our achievements, and look forward to a bright future with confidence. Our schools have done an incredible job shaping the minds of future generations. We're looking to the future to make sure our education system can prepare young people to learn throughout their lives, from the first days of early childhood education to post-school pathways.  

#EdWeek23 commenced with a live stream event broadcasted from Cambridge Park Public School to public schools across the state. The event featured messages from Deputy Premier and Minister for Education and Early Learning, the Hon. Prue Car, and the Secretary for NSW Department of Education, Murat Dizdar.  

You can now watch the recording if you missed out on the live stream.
