Bourke High School serves a small isolated community in the far north west of NSW. The school's student population is approximately 160, of whom 89% identify as being Aboriginal.
Bourke High School is a comprehensive high school providing a quality education in a caring, supportive and stimulating environment. The school features a strong vocational education and training focus in all years. Its basic purpose is to offer a strong, inclusive and comprehensive academic and vocational curriculum while still providing sporting, social and cultural opportunities for all. There is also a strong welfare focus with programs in place to address students' social, as well as, educational needs. New school rules: Respect - Safety - Learning: have been developed to reflect this and underpin all activities. The stated aim of the school is that all students can achieve success and the goal is for all students leaving school to enter employment or further education and training. The school is currently renewing its focus on Literacy, numeracy, technology and improving attendance.
