About usWilmington Primary School is set in Beautiful Valley in the lower Flinders Ranges. In 2017 the Wilmington Kindergarten amalgamated with and relocated to the primary school. A purpose built preschool room and play area were added to the existing classroom/admin block. Wilmington Preschool is now classed as a site based preschool.
At Wilmington Primary School we work closely with families to provide the best possible experiences and support for our children. We take pride in knowing children and families personally, making them feel connected and acknowledge that they are an integral part of our school. We strive to build a school culture based on our school values of respect, care, honesty and persistence.
The school is committed to creating a culture of continuous learning and improvement with a strong focus on Literacy, Numeracy and Student Wellbeing.
Students are also encouraged to contribute to the decision making processes within the school through the Student Representative Council.
There are flexible transition programs for children beginning preschool and then moving into Reception. There are also processes in place to support students moving through the classes within the school, as well as a transition program to secondary schooling, at Booleroo Centre District School.
Our Governing Council provides a strong parent voice and direction for the school. We have a proactive Fundraising Committee who organise events to raise funds for the school and provides services for our children, including Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day stalls and catering for school events.
Wilmington Primary School is an integral part of the local community, with students taking part in a variety of activities including sports and community events eg ANZAC Day and making a significant contribution to displays at the local show.
In our caring environment students are encouraged to develop positive mindsets about their learning and know that it is okay to make mistakes along the way, to take responsibility for their learning actions so they can feel confident to participate in an ever changing society.
