Peterborough Primary School

Welcome to Peterborough Primary School

Situated just off the Barrier Highway, halfway between Adelaide and Broken Hill, Peterborough Primary School has all the qualities and support one would expect from a country community. We have a long, proud history and, in 2008, we celebrated 125 years of public education. Our school community believes that, by valuing respect, responsibility, honesty and kindness to all, we will all be excellent learners.

Within this practised ethos, a skilled, caring teaching and non-teaching staff have prioritised literacy, numeracy and ICT as curriculum emphases. Special programs include literacy support, school choir, SAPSASA sport and coaching clinics, and music. We have five classes across the Reception - Year 7 range and are combining with the town's pre-school and high school (with its trade school facilities) in transition programs to bring a cohesive birth to young adulthood education environment to Peterborough and surrounding towns.

The parents and friends of our school enrich us with their generosity in tirelessly volunteering their support and care. We are proud of our past and confident for our future.
