About our school

Walgett Community College is located 290 km north–west of Dubbo. The College has a combined P–12 enrolment of 275 students, including approximately 97% Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, across two campuses.

The college is in a remote, rural location near the junctions of the Barwon and Namoi Rivers on Gamilaroi Country that allows learning to occur in unique environments. 

Facilities at the college include a preschool and two trade training centres offering courses including hospitality, metal and engineering and construction.

The school plays a significant role in the local community and is supported by the Walgett Local Aboriginal Education Consultative Group, the Walgett Community College School Reference Group and P&C. These organisations work in partnership with the college to ensure better educational outcomes for students.
