Our Saviour Lutheran School is a community that learns, loves, laughs and lives together. We value learning, because it opens doors to the future and enables children to understand and appreciate more about their world. We show love to others because we recognise God’s love for us and want to share it through a friendly smile, a helping hand or a kind word. We laugh together and live life with enthusiasm because that helps us to grow, to make friends and to seize life’s endless opportunities.
By embracing all that Our Saviour offers and by working in partnership with our dedicated and professional staff, we’re confident that your child will leave our school with the skills, attitude and energy equipped to lead the life you’d want them to live and prepared for the next phase of their learning journey.

Situated in the suburb of Glengowrie, Our Lady of Grace is one of two Reception to Year 5 primary schools in the Glenelg Parish within the South West region of Adelaide.
Established in 1953, the school opened its doors at the start of the school year in February 1954. Originally it served the local community as both a church and a school, being converted from one to the other each weekend for Sunday Mass, with three classrooms housed within the church walls.
Since then it has grown in size and reputation, now comprising eight classrooms, a library resource suite, Reading Recovery and Adaptive Education tutorial spaces and a well used hall.
Our school has approximately 200 students and operates within the Dominican Tradition. A particular focus is placed on Literacy and Numeracy, but we have developed an integrated Information and Communication Technology programme, offer specialisation in Music, Drama and Physical Education and run a comprehensive sports programme.
Being a member of the South West Region of Catholic Schools, children enrolled from Reception are assured a pathway into Cabra Dominican College, Marymount or Sacred Heart Colleges for their Middle and Secondary schooling. It is important to note that parents are responsible for making an enrolment application to their preferred Secondary or Middle school.
Since first opening its doors in 1980, Reynella East College has played a significant role in the development and establishment of the communities in the Southern Vales area.
The school quickly gained a reputation across the southern area for its commitment to standards of excellence and innovation in education. This reputation continues to grow, as the school demands only the best from both its teachers and students.
As a result of its reputation, the school is at enrolment capacity with waiting lists at all year levels. We welcome students from across the Southern Vales of Adelaide and from many different countries of the world through our buoyant international program.
Sacred Heart College Middle School is a school for boys from Years 6 to 9. Situated in Mitchell Park, Sacred Heart Middle has provided quality boys education to both local and boarding students for nearly 50 years. The school has a close relationship with Sacred Heart College Senior, a co-educational Years 10 to 12, day and boarding school in Somerton Park. The boys are joined in Year 10 by the girls from Marymount College, a girls middle school from Years 6 to 9 located in Hove.
The Marist Brothers were founded in France by Saint Marcellin Champagnat in the early years of the nineteenth century and they were subsequently invited to establish schools in Australia, arriving in 1872. 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.
For 2014, Sacred Heart College will have the same Principal for each of the schools - the Middle and Senior Schools. During the year consultation in regard to the future structure of 'Sacred Heart' will occur.

We believe that your child will succeed here when given the opportunity to become a self-managed learner.
At St Anthony's we dare the children to become learners who take risks, where creativity is nurtured and they are encouraged to become creative and critical thinkers that are socially just and environmentally aware locally and globally.

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.
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.
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. Our Mercy charism calls us to be mercy in action wherever we are.

Choosing a school for your child in the early years is challenging and even a little overwhelming. It is a decision that comes at a time when your child is yet to discover their interest and passions. It is a choice that should reflect and connect the values of your family, your community and your beliefs.
Everyone is someone at Immanuel. We don’t try to predict the type of person your child will become, we prefer to connect hearts and minds unlimited by boundaries.

Founded in 1886 by Dominican Sisters from Cabra in Ireland, Cabra Dominican College, as a Christian community in the Catholic tradition, strives to nurture and develop the unique gifts of individuals, to liberate them in the search for truth and to empower them to create a better world. The integration of Christian values, scholarly endeavour and cooperative involvement underpin all learning experiences at Cabra. The College motto is VERITAS which is the Latin word for truth. It is a motto shared by Dominican communities and institutions throughout the world. At Cabra Veritas describes our quest to understand who God calls each of us to be and to look at the world through the eyes of a loving creator.
This focus on each individual means that we need to provide a broad range of educational, pastoral and co-curricular programs if we are to have any chance of making the Cabra Vision a reality in the lives of our students. Therefore, it is easy to recognise excellence in many different areas of the College. Cabra Dominican College also hosts a specialist educational facility, the St Mary’s Unit, which caters specifi cally for the learning needs of approximately twenty students with a diagnosed intellectual disability. With highly individualised programmes for its students, the St Mary’s Unit has continually set the standard for excellence in this important and specialised fi eld of education.
