The NSW Department of Education’s innovative Aurora College has taken up a temporary home at Mowbray Public School. There are twenty-four housed in four classrooms.
Aurora College (The Virtual Secondary School) is a new and unique secondary option for students in government schools in NSW.
Classes commenced in January 2015 with over 160 students from all across NSW.
Students stay connected locally while developing their passion for subjects and courses that link to their career plans and broaden their post school options.
Students connect with their peers and their teachers through lessons delivered virtually, through technology and personally during residential schools held twice each year.
Aurora College provide a personalised experience and has a strong science and mathematics focus. Mentoring opportunities and master classes are key features of the learning experience.
Teachers who are part of our school are able to remain connected with their local school and community while expanding their teaching and career options through this unique experience.
The College expects to remain at Mowbray for one year.
