Burnside Primary School is a DECD government school nestled in the foothills of Adelaide. Originally designed to service the children of a small rural community, its enrolment numbers have grown from 49 students in 1869 to over 800 students in 2018.
Under the shade of majestic gum trees with its footprint established in a quiet residential community, the original school buildings sit side by side state of the art facilities, including a multi story Junior Primary Learning Centre, Gymnasium and a recently renovated Performing Arts Auditorium.
Burnside Primary has the unique geography to provide students with not only an oval and tennis courts onsite, but is also a stones throw away from the versatile sporting grounds of Newland’s Reserve and Hazelwood Park’s acclaimed swimming facilities; which can be accessed for both our Sports Day Carnival and Swimming Carnival.
Academically our strong curriculum focus also provides specialist lessons in French, Science and Physical Education; along with an extensive Music and Arts program. We have a broad variety of co-curricular opportunities and an extensive after school sporting program which is supported by a strong community of volunteers.
