Annesley Junior School

28 Rose Terrace, Wayville SA 5034

Set on beautiful grounds on the edge of the city, Annesley Junior School is a caringcommunity where every child is cherished for their individuality. What families most love about Annesley is that it's a school where children can genuinely feel at home, and where values are lived out everyday.

Annesley Junior School caters for boys and girls from two years of age to Year 6. Annesley children engage in a rigorous program with a focus on leadership, serviceand community sustainability. We offer flexibility as to when your child commences in our Early Learning Centre and we have multiple intakes into our Reception classes, recognising that children are ready to start school at different times. Children are also welcome to join us in other year levels.

At Annesley, our children enjoy an expansive outdoor space with lushgreen lawns inwhich to learn and play, and their inside learning environment was purpose-built for young children. Our school is mid-fee and is open 49 weeks of the year. The Early Learning Centre, Before and After School and Vacation Care programs are accredited, enabling families to access the child-care benefit and rebate for these services.

Annesley has ten core values, which form the basis of how our teachers and students interact: resilience, responsibility, humility, civility, justice, compassion, respect, gratitude courage and integrity. When our Annesley children grow and enter the wider world these values serve them well, allowing them to appreciate the differences – religious, cultural or otherwise – of those they encounter, and to flourish as true global citizens. Annesley’s values are implicitly and explicitly taught through role modelling, trans-disciplinary units, discussion, questioning and guided reflection.

Our children benefit from the rich history of a distinguished educational institution founded by the Uniting Church in 1902. Community events are held in what is the historic heart of the school, Gillingham Hall, a grand structure built in the 1920s. Here a sense of tradition is most tangible. The school is a ten-minute walk from the CBD or a three-minute walk to the tram stop, which many parents working in the city find very helpful. Annesley’s close proximity to the tramline also means classes frequently travel into the city for excursions to extend their learning.

Annesley Junior School is a vibrant place of learning. Our students are well prepared to be active, responsible and ethical citizens of our global world.

Sacred Heart was founded in 1897 and is now governed by Marist Schools Australia, along with fifty one other schools across Australia.

Contemporary Marist educators share and continue Marcellin's dream of transforming the lives of young people, particularly the least favoured, through offering them an holistic education, aimed to develop "good citizens and good Christians." This is evidenced in the curriculum, extension activities and the religious experiences designed to be relevant and contemporary learning opportunities for middle school boys.

Our Values

SPW encourages students to find joy and enlightenment in their education, giving them the best opportunity to leave school feeling happy, confident and ready to face the world ahead.

We believe that a child is born with a spontaneous sense of wonder and happiness at being alive, and a school’s most important job is to nurture and foster that daily sense of delight.

At the same time we have a serious responsibility to reveal the accumulated experiences that we as humans have gained – how the world works, how change creates opportunity and how diversity adds richness.

Most importantly we want our students to understand how the values of tolerance, compassion and respect underpin our relationships.

St Teresa's School

28 Strathmore Terrace, Brighton SA 5048

St Teresa’s School was established by the Sisters of Mercy from the Wilcannia - Forbes Diocese (main city Broken Hill) in 1916.

St Teresa's School was named after St Teresa of Avila who was born in Avila, Spain in 1515. She was a great writer who was able to explain clearly her feelings and thoughts about God. Many of her writings are used today in songs.

The first school room was in a small detached cottage in the convent grounds. From there the school moved into a converted conservatory, which served as a church and school for many years. This building later became known as ‘The Hall’ until demolished in 1983.

The first school classroom was built in 1950 and the next in 1961.

Modifications and up-grading were carried out in 1977 and 1979. During 2005 a major building project was undertaken and has brought the school to its present standing.

The Sisters of Mercy administered and staffed the school until 1976, when the first lay Principal was appointed.

With the rationalisation of schools in the South West Region, St Teresa’s School became a Reception to Year 5 school in 1979.

Mission statement
At St Teresa’s School, we embrace God’s unconditional love within the ordinary circumstances of life in our school community. This fundamental value is evident in our teaching and learning and is revealed in the way we touch the lives of those we meet along the journey.

Vision statement
St Teresa’s School strives to provide a quality education for the 'whole' person - spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically - in a spirit of partnership with families and educators. We celebrate the uniqueness and acknowledge the dignity of each person within our community and encourage them to be the best that they can be.
