Primary School R-6

At Paralowie, we provide a supportive environment for teaching and learning, with a focus on achievement and success for all in life, learning and citizenship. We work in partnership with the community to provide an education that equips students with the skills, knowledge, understanding, and values to actively participate in, and contribute to, a productive and rewarding life in society.


We maintain close links with community kindergartens. Continuity of learning visits occur throughout the year, with transition visits beginning in term 4. Before they begin, students attend the school several times to meet teachers and familiarise themselves with school routines and environment.
