Tullimbar Public School is new and continually growing. Tullimbar Public School is committed to promoting excellence in education by maximising the full potential of all students through the provision of quality teaching and learning programs with active community involvement in a dynamic, stimulating and caring environment. Tullimbar Public School has an inclusive focus where all children's individual needs are expertly catered for through the provision of appropriate, relevant learning experiences presented by skilled, innovative educators. The school hosts three support classes as well as six mainstream classes. Support class students are also integrated into mainstream programs throughout the week. The school is currently part of the National Partnerships program with the focus on literacy and numeracy. As part of this program the school has implemented the Accelerated Literacy program, the L3 program (Language, Learning and Literacy), the Best Start Assessment program for Kindergarten students and TOWN (Taking Off With Numeracy). The school has a range of student welfare programs that underlie and promote a positive school culture. The You Can Do It program is taught across the school on a weekly basis. It emphasises the development of the keys to success (persistence, confidence, resilience, getting along and organisation) amongst students. It is supplemented by a Go For Gold program where students work towards high standards of manners, behaviour and respect.
