Principal’s Message

Welcome to Athelstone School.

Located in the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges between the River Torrens in the north and the Black Hill / Morialta Conservation Parks in the south we are perfectly positioned to give your child the learning experiences necessary for engagement with not only their local communities, but within a larger global context too.

At Athelstone School your child can succeed, whatever their passion. If they love being outdoors, our outdoor classroom, nature play, kitchen garden, frog pond and local land care projects will inspire them to stewardship of natural environments. If they love playing sport, our sports programs will keep them active. If they are musical, our instrumental music programs and specialist performing arts lessons will foster their talent in the arts and if they just love learning our approaches will nurture their curiosity and allow them to inquire into their world while ensuring they have the numeracy and literacy skills to match.

RIVER – Our values, just like the River Torrens, wind their way through a school culture focused on wellbeing. ‘Respect’ and ‘integrity’ are encouraged through an active ‘vision’ fostering ‘excellence’ and ‘responsibility’ in everything we do.

We know that to deliver a world class education for your child and achieve extraordinary things together there is only one team – the Athelstone School team. Come join us on the journey.
