About Us

THE Tomerong Public School Sesquicentenary is an event organised and run under the auspices of the Tomerong Public School P&C. The TPS Sesquicentenary Committee and its supporters include current TPS staff, students, parents, past students and parents, and community members. The aim of the event is to celebrate 150 years of public education in the village and provide the opportunity for all those who have had a connection with the school to join us in reuniting and celebrating the occasion.

The purpose of this website is to help publicise the TPS Sesquicentenary and provide an avenue for all to contribute. There is no formal association between the developers of this website and the NSW Department of Education and Community, Tomerong Public School or the TPS P&C.
