Blanchetown Primary School

Blanchetown Primary is a small Riverland school located 140 kilometres from Adelaide, home of Lock One. Set on picturesque grounds, our students are supported to be active learners who ask questions, take risks and focus on learning goals. Our school has three key values- Resilient, Responsible and Respectful. Students are empowered to use these values daily.

We have a comprehensive data schedule that helps inform individual learning goals. A sequential and intensive phonics program is utilised at our school. We are well resourced with decodable readers and students have 1:1 devices, iPads in R-2 and laptops in Yr 3-6.

Our R-2 class is called our Little Learners and our Year 3-6s are in The Hive of active learners.
Our staff are dedicated and committed to our families.

We welcome you for a Principal’s Tour by phoning 85 405 041 for a booking.

Psst! If you haven’t heard about the new mid-year intake to reception, here’s what you need to know!

✔️ Mid-year intake to reception starts at all government primary schools in 2024.

✔️ It’s for children who turn 5 between 1 May and 31 October.

✔️ Mid-year intake starts in July (term 3) so children can start school at a time that is better suited to their age and stage of learning instead of waiting to the next year.

✔️ Children who start in a mid-year intake will complete 6 terms of reception.

Rippers is a Surf Life Saving SA junior activities program based on the river. The program is specially designed for children aged five to twelve. The program is a great way to help kids learn essential water safety skills, grow their confidence, and make lifelong friendships.

Not only is Rippers a fun way for children to enjoy the river in a safe environment, but it also offers children an educational pathway through the Junior Development Program. This program sets them on the path to becoming a fully rounded participant in both lifesaving and sport - we like to call it 'Serious Fun'.

Rippers Lake Bonney - will be held on weekends in February and March 2024 in front of the Sailing Club.

Surf Life Saving SA and VACSWIM will be hosting an information session Wednesday 15 November at 6.00pm at the Berri Community Pavilion, Vaughan Terrace, Berri.

This hour long session, will involve a short presentation on the program.
