About our school

Villawood East Public School was established in 1955 and in 1999 was awarded The Director-General's School Achievement Award for Programs to Support Students. Our statement of purpose is "Quality Learning through Participation and Equity". We believe that all children can learn and that children learn best when they are in a happy and safe environment. We value the individual, co-operative learning, active participation, collaboration and collegiality, open communication and active participation. The acquisition of literacy and numeracy skills for all children is the school's highest priority. We have an outstanding record in integrating and including children with special needs. 

Our school has nine regular classes from Kindergarten to Year 6, three special education classes and a preschool. Every classroom utilises the latest in digital technology with electronic Smartboards being used and integrated in all classroom activities

We pride ourselves on meeting the individual learning needs of every student to equip them for the future. Our school has three support classes for students with disabilities: two autism classes and one IM class.
