Welcome to Hallett Cove South Primary School

Hallett Cove South Primary School is situated in a historic coastal location south of Adelaide city centre. 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. Originally starting in one of the Units, the Child Parent Centre / Kindergarten was located on its present site in 1978. The school was an integral part of the original Hallett Cove housing 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 first clubrooms in the district were those belonging to the Surf Life Saving community. The development of the Lonsdale Highway in the mid 1980's increased access and facilities and the area has boomed.

With the establishment of Hallett Cove School (R-12) in 1987, and other schools in the Hallett Cove and surrounding areas since then, the school's enrolment is approximately 170 students plus kindergarten students. The school caters for junior primary and primary students , pre- entry and kindergarten children and two special classes catering for students with disabilities.

The purpose of this website is to provide you with necessary information about our school, to outline our school values and principles and to provide access to up-to-date information about current activities and events.
