Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Keller Road Primary School website

Keller Road Primary School is a small school surrounded by beautiful grounds, located 17km north of Adelaide. Our site accesses two large ovals for students to enjoy a range of activities.

It is a dynamic school community, blending a rich diversity of cultures. We offer quality educational learning experiences in accordance with the Australian Curriculum framework. Currently we provide specialist programmes in P.E., Science and Health. In 2020 we will be offering Kaurna as our school language curriculum, in association with language custodians Kaurna Warra Karpanthi.

Breakfast Club, supported by Kickstart, is offered Monday to Friday. This is a highly social and successful beginning to the day for those who like to chat over toast and fruit.

Our site includes a Disability Unit, whose students are often integrated into wider school activities, fostering tolerance and acceptance of differences for all students.

We provide a variety of lunchtime activities. Our nature play area offers a rich and diverse experience that encourages children to create free and unstructured play.

Our school priorities are focused on Literacy, Numeracy and Student Wellbeing. These are supported by our active Governing Council. We also have a strong student leadership group who provide a decision-making voice and support for our students.

The curriculum and learning environment are tailored to suit each student. This encourages them to excel and develop their own specific talents. A team of skilled School Support Officers work alongside teaching staff to deliver targeted programmes focusing on literacy and numeracy intervention to support and extend students.

Keller Road Primary School provides up-to-date learning environments with interactive whiteboards or touch screen TVs actively utilised in all teaching areas. We have a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) as well as a new purpose-built STEM facility. We work closely with Partnership schools, including the local High School to implement current research and knowledge in this area.

At Keller Road Primary School, all students are encouraged to reach their personal best and reflect our values of Knowledge, Respect and Success. We provide a strong focus on positive behaviour with emphasis on anti-bullying and a safe learning environment.
