Situated less than 2km
from Kadina’s main shopping area Wallaroo Mines Primary School is
certainly worth a visit. Originally established in 1876 it was Kadina’s
first primary school. Following a proud 90 year tradition the school
was relocated in 1966 to the current, quiet Lipson Ave site where it
continues to provide an excellent standard of education for R-7
students from Kadina and the surrounding community.
In 2010 the students,
staff and school community established and launched a new set of Values
that are driving our future direction. The Values of Communication,
Understanding, Trust, Collaboration and Relationships underpin all that
we do. The development of a new school logo, highlighting our Values,
has ensured a
prominence within the Kadina community.
A small school with
many features Wallaroo Mines Primary School offers:
- Quality learning programs including
Literacy & Numeracy support and a model of Learner Intervention
that supports ALL of our students.
- Whole School agreements for the teaching
of Literacy and Numeracy.
- Small class sizes.
- Access to a wide range of digital
learning experiences including iPads and iPod Touch devices,
Interactive Whiteboards in all learning spaces and a wireless network

School is certainly worth considering for your child’s education.
