Local Community

Parent and Community Involvement

Parents are actively involved throughout the school as classroom support volunteers, Resource Centre helpers, LAP mentors, helping with Indonesian Cooking Week and as helpers on excursions when required.

The Governing Council is an active group.

The Sub-committees are:

  • Finance
  • Fundraising
  • Out of School Hours Care

The Governing Council meets once a month on a Wednesday evening and sub-committees meet as necessary. Each Committee is asked to produce a brief statement of what they intend achieving. This can then be used to indicate progress made for the Annual Report.

Feeder schools

Students from Gawler East Primary School attend many different secondary schools both government and private. There are several independent schools in the area. The majority of year 7 students enrol at Gawler & District College, Xavier College or Trinity College as their chosen secondary school.

Other local care and educational facilities

There is a Pre-school and Day Care Centre across the road, creating a unique cluster of community facilities, when combined with the primary school with Out of School Hours Care facilities.
