Paringa Park Primary School aspires to build a community of ‘Powerful Learners’ that are highly focused, motivated and active thinkers, able to communicate effectively in a range of ways and learn together in teams. They can identify and solve multi-step, non-routine and complex problems and use creative thinking to generate original ideas and information. ‘Powerful Learners’ set goals for their learning, draw on their curiosity to ask deep questions that require skilled investigation and find and use information to achieve their purpose.
The school has a 'zoned' enrolment catchment area and is located 1.8kms from the beaches of Brighton and Somerton Park and 12.6kms from the CBD of Adelaide. Paringa Park Primary services the learning needs of primary aged children living in the suburbs of North Brighton and Somerton.
The school has many contemporary indoor and outdoor learning spaces including a performing arts area and full size gymnasium. Many areas in the school have been refurbished including the library. We have two covered outdoor learning areas, one with a stage and a new nature play area.
Specialist programs include Speech and Language Class, French, PE and the Performing Arts with instrumental music tuition offered on a range of instruments.
Our values of Bravery, Care, Challenge and Trust are reflected in our school motto – ‘The Best We Can Be’.
