Principal's Welcome

Tea Tree Gully PS is located 20km from the Adelaide CBD in a picturesque hillside setting. The school holds a unique place in the history of South Australian public education having been one of the first schools established in South Australia back in 1870.

At Tea Tree Gully Primary School, we provide a success orientated environment catering for the needs of all learners. We focus strongly on ‘Powerful Learners’ and ‘Growth Mindsets’ to underpin a well-developed ethos of continual improvement.

As a small school Tea Tree Gully PS provides an intimate setting where care and concern for the wellbeing of all students is a priority. We have developed strong links and positive relationships with parents and the community. We liaise closely with Kathleen Mellor Kindergarten and Banksia Park International High School.

In addition to high quality classroom teaching we offer specialist learning areas in Technology, Physical Education and Japanese. Extra-curricular activities include Nature Play, Choir, Enterprise Education, annual Science and Art Fairs and STEMSEL (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths linked with Social Enterprise Learning).

Our nature play area offers a rich and diverse experience that encourages children by making unstructured, free play.

Our school priorities are focused on Literacy, Numeracy and Student Wellbeing and are supported by our active Governing Council. We have a strong student leadership who are a decision making voice and provide support for our students.

At Tea Tree Gully Primary School all students are encouraged to reach their personal best and reflect our values of Respect, Responsibility, Collaboration and Excellence. We provide a strong focus on positive behaviour with emphasis on anti-bullying and a safe learning and play environment.

Feel free to contact us for further information and we would be happy to give you a tour of the school at your convenience. Stay tuned for our newly developed website.
