We are situated in the eastern suburbs of Adelaide in the suburb of Kensington, approximately 5kms from the city. Marryatville Primary School is known as a ‘community school’ and enjoys high levels of parental support and involvement. Performing Arts, French, Science and Physical Education are taught by school-based specialist teachers.
Teachers work collaboratively in year level groups as well as across year levels as ‘buddy classes’. Teachers use higher order thinking skills as part of their approach to teaching and learning and to stretch student achievement. There is a commitment to Inquiry Learning and the effective use of Information and Communication Technologies across the curriculum. French is the LOTE subject offered. School Services Officers support individual and small group learning.
Reception students transition from a range of preschools and child care centres such as McKellar Stewart Kindergarten, Margaret Ives Children’s Centre and Kensington Gardens Preschool. Most Year 7 students attend Marryatville High School with some students zoned to Norwood/Morialta High School.
