Welcome to Hallett Cove South Primary School

Hallett Cove South Primary School is situated in a historic coastal location south of the Adelaide CBD. Situated near the World Heritage listed Hallett Cove Conservation Park, the school opened in April, 1976 with an enrolment of 100 students.

The early days of the school saw rapid growth as the school reached a peak enrolment of 700 students. The school was an integral part of the original Hallett Cove urban development. Access was limited and facilities and services had to be gained from the Brighton/Seacliff area.

The limited facilities and a population of young families developed a pioneering spirit and a strong sense of community.

As the hub of the community, the school was the starting point for Churches and sporting clubs. The development of the Lonsdale Highway in the mid 1980's and recent completion of the Southern Expressway has increased access and facilities and the area has boomed.

As the population increased, other schools in the Hallett Cove and surrounding areas were established. Currently the average enrolment is around 160 students, plus pre-school students. The school caters for junior primary and primary students, preschool children and two regional special classes catering for students with disabilities.
