Parents of reception students are invited to visit our Reception Literacy page to learn about the approach we use to ensure each child quickly and enjoyably learns to read and write.

Our Vision: To empower students to create positive futures through high quality teaching.

Our Values: Respect, Responsibility, Confidence, Safety and Security and Fun, underpin all that we do.

We develop students' social skills, creativity, problem solving, self confidence and ability to access and process knowledge. We provide a safe, happy, caring, supportive and positive environment in which children develop empathy for others, responsibility, and a strong desire to learn and achieve.

The school strives to foster parent/teacher relationships that enhance the learning opportunities available to students and believes that teachers and parents are partners in education.

The school programme is further enriched by involvement with the community and projects which allow students to demonstrate active involvement in their learning. We have a very active Governing Council.

Ardtornish Primary School (R-7) is located 20km North East of the Adelaide city centre and there is an interesting history behind its establishment and name. See us on a map.
