Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Callington Primary School

A stunning, small, rural Reception to Year 7 school, Callington Primary is located where the Adelaide Hills meet the Murraylands, near the Bremer River. Our student catchment area ranges from Callington itself to Kanmantoo and Monarto.

Callington Primary School is focussed on developing and strong sense of community, a community focussed on working together to develop successful, lifelong learners through our established learning programs and strong relationships forged between staff, parents and students. The staff is a dedicated and highly professional team who work hard to ensure that their teaching methods engage, support and challenge all learners in a safe and supportive learning environment. They are working conscientiously to ensure that they are meeting the needs of students to 'prepare them for the future.'

The parents and other community members take great pride and interest in the successes of the school. The Governing Council are passionate and highly motivated to ensure the ongoing success of the school through a desire to fully support the teaching staff and various curriculum programs.

To provide every child with the foundations of success now and into the future there is a comprehensive curriculum on offer from Reception to Year 7. The school also offers curriculum specialists in the areas of Chinese, Health and Physical Education.

Our aim is to provide a coherent learning program, based on the Australian Curriculum, for all students as they move through the different levels of schooling. Our staff engage with their own professional development and growth to implement the most current methodologies to further inspire the children's learning.

We look forward to welcoming your family to the Callington Primary School community and  developing a positive partnership with you to assist your child on the learning journey, experiencing a happy association with our school.
