Talbingo Public School is a small isolated school located in the Snowy Mountains area. The school was built in the early nineteen sixties along with the village of Talbingo as part of the Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Scheme.
The village is situated in a very beautiful natural environment surrounded by the Kosciuszko National Park. The school makes full use of its close location to the snowfields with snow skiing being the weekly sport in the winter months. Talbingo is a Country Areas Program school and as a result receives additional funding to address the issue of isolation. Talbingo Public School strives to provide a supportive environment that allows all children to achieve their full potential.
