Goodooga is an isolated rural centre located in the north west of New South Wales.
Students are drawn from the immediate township and the surrounding area. The school's location and isolation leads to a high turnover of staff and few job opportunities for students in post-school life. To counteract the obstacles the school has firm links with TAFE and is a member of the Northern Borders Senior Access program which provides a broad curriculum for students in Y11 and Y12 by linking with staff from three other schools via teleconferencing and the internet. Goodooga Central School is committed to providing quality educational experiences in a safe, positive environment, in partnership with the community. Particular emphasis is placed upon student well-being in meeting the needs of all students through individual and group practices that concentrate on the development of literacy and numeracy skills. The goal of Goodooga Central School is to provide quality education in a safe and stimulating learning environment and in so doing encourage students to be respectful and responsible learners.
