Welcome to the Government Schools of NSW website
The Government schools of New South Wales from 1848 website provides valuable historical information on NSW government schools operating since 1848.
This website includes a number of information sources:
a searchable database which provides entries for more than 7,390 schools
facts and figures of many historical aspects of public education in NSW
a changing historical photogallery.
Each entry consists of the name of the school, the county in which it is located and its operating dates.
The school entries section gives background information on how the entries were compiled.
For additional NSW historical education information, the authorities listed in the links section might also be of help.
