About NG Central School

Ngaruki Gulgul (NG Central School) means ‘standing strong’ in Darkinjung language. We offer a dynamic enterprise education model for young people who want to change the way they learn. 

Founded in 2014 and located in Kariong, we are registered and accredited as a special assistance, non-government school and offer a NSW Education Standards Authority school curriculum for Years 9-12.


Additionally, we provide a pathway into a trade or further vocational education and training across the horticulture, hospitality, retail, construction and automotive industries.

In cases where students are experiencing financial, academic and/or social barriers that limit their capacity to engage in their education, NG Central provides benevolent relief.

Our Philosophy

To create a dynamic, enterprising learning environment for young people who need a new perspective on what it means to have skills and knowledge. 
We believe in delivering education that develops:
Learning Skills       Personal Skills      Social Skills        Professional Skills

The NG Central Model

We combine hands-on learning, enterprising practical work and vocational training, alongside dynamic and individualised welfare and case management support.


This unique offering ensures the inclusion of young people who have not been succeeding in their mainstream studies by treating their barriers to engagement in a respectful and holistic manner. 


Our enterprise education model provides students with the skills, knowledge and support they need to enter further education, training and employment and become positive, contributing members of their community.
