Located just 20km from Wyong, Darkinjung Barker College occupies the site of the original Yarramalong Public School, which was first opened in 1870. This picturesque site provides ample space for the students to run, play, explore and learn. Classes commence each day at 8.30am. The Darkinjung Barker College bus arrives at School by 8.15am and collects students at the end of the School day at 3.00pm.
Each fortnight students from Darkinjung Barker College have the opportunity to interact with their peers from the Barker Hornsby campus. At Hornsby they attend classes such as Art, Music, Chapel, Personal Development and Library. The children also participate in House Carnivals for swimming, cross country and athletics. These regular excursions add to the experience for all students.
We are fortunate to have the involvement of the Darkinjung community, who assist in teaching the students Indigenous culture, including language, music and art. Volunteers are encouraged to assist the children with their educational progress.
