PUBLIC school enrolments are enjoying a resurgence of sorts across the state, with Leeton shire's numbers reported to be steady.
New data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows continuing strong growth in public school enrolments.
The Schools Australia 2019 report shows student enrolments at NSW public schools grew by 7651 students in 2019.
Over the past five years enrolments at NSW public schools have increased by 33,694 students.
Leeton shire is home to many public schools, including Leeton High, Leeton Public, Parkview Public, Wamoon Public, Yanco Public, Whitton-Murrami Public and Gralee.
Parkview Public principal Travis Irvin said his school had enjoyed a solid build up of numbers over the last decade.
"Our numbers are pretty solid again this year ... I would say we are looking at almost being at capacity," he said. "I think parents are seeing the value of public school education. That's due to schools themselves (throughout Leeton shire) offering many and varied opportunities to students across the board."
Mr Irvin said investment in staff training was also paying off, as well as the continued relationship of all of the shire's public schools as part of the Leeton Community of Public Schools group.
This initiative has schools working together in all kinds of curriculum areas, including sport, arts and culture to offer students a wide variety of educational tools.
Other principals such as Tarnya Grigg at Yanco Public School reported numbers there were steady and was hopeful they would continue growing in the years to come.
NSW Teachers Federation president Angelo Gavrielatos said the rise in public school enrolments shows parents had faith in the system.
"NSW public schools deliver our kids an excellent education and parents have recognised that by continuing to flock to the public school system despite the continuing failure of governments to support our public school communities with fair funding," he said.
