Welcome to Paringa Park Primary School - online.
Paringa Park Primary School is a vibrant, caring, high achieving learning community providing a rich and challenging curriculum where the
skills of inquiry, collaboration and creativity are valued. The
school has a 'zoned'
enrolment catchment area and is located just 1.8kms from the beautiful

the learning needs of primary aged children living in the suburbs
of North Brighton and Somerton.
Our students will
be lifelong learners with a strong social and environmental conscience
able to successfully participate in local and global communities.
They will also be effective communicators who can interact positively
and responsibly with others. Further, through quality care and teaching,
we aim to engage students to achieve at the highest possible level.
Values of 'doing your best, caring for and
respecting yourself and others, taking action to protect the environment,
learning, growing and working together' are reflected in our school
motto - 'The best we can be'.
The school has recently been redeveloped and
has eight new learning areas and a new performing arts space. Other learning areas within the school have been refurbished recently including the redevelopment of our library and information centre. Each learning area has an interactive whiteboard
and there is a focus on e-Learning throughout the school. We have a new Gymnasium and two Covered Outdoor Learning Areas (COLAs) one with a stage.
Specialist programs include French, PE and the Performing Arts with instrumental music tuition offered on a range of instruments. The school has a strong sporting tradition with teams in volleyball, cricket, basketball, netball, soccer, T-ball and football as well as offering participation in a variety of SAPSASA teams and events.
