Modbury South Primary is located in the proximity of Tea Tree Plaza and Modbury Hospital. The school was opened in 1965. Modbury South Primary School is part of a multi-school campus with Modbury High School and Modbury Special School. As such we are known for our family and community hub atmosphere.
Apart from the well kept grounds and oval, the school has basketball and netball courts outside; a gym, a performing arts room; extensive shaded playground equipment as well as a reflective memorial garden for relaxation and is an outdoor learning space. This area is also WiFi compatible. A Resource Centre technology hub is in the open space unit and is across a small lane from the main part of the school. Our onsite preschool is next to the Resource Centre. An out of School Hours and Vacation Care Program runs at the school.
We are in the Northern Adelaide Region and the Hope Valley Cluster. We work with Ingle Farm East Primary School in Professional Learning Communities to support the learning of all staff. We value this opportunity as a small school to develop our skills and understandings of student learning. Our motto, Learning Together for the Future reflects our school values which are: care, cooperation, courtesy, equity, achievement, a love of learning, integrity and tolerance. The beginning of the year starts with a 2 week social skills program where all students work in their classes, in their house groups and with their buddy class. Early Years students have a buddy who becomes their special friend for the year. This model allows for all students and staff to get to know one another and supports our commitment of students working within cross age peer groups.
