Chillingham Public School is a small rural school, which remains a central part of the local community. It is located in the picturesque Numinbah Valley just 16 kilometres from Murwillumbah and 10 kilometres from the Queensland border. 

Our aim at Chillingham Public School is to empower our students with the knowledge, skills and confidence required to produce individuals who can be happy, literate, life long learners who make a positive contribution to society. 


School Philosophy
We see the total teaching unit as the home and school working together and closely integrated for the physical, academic and social growth of the child.
