Sturt Street Community School situated in the South West sector of the Adelaide CBD services the needs of families who live in the CBD.
Reopened in 2004 Sturt Street Community School was South Australia’s first government school dedicated to care and education for children from Birth to Year 7 for families who live in the CBD.
There is a priority of access firstly to CBD children but where vacancies exist, parents who work and study in CBD may also access the school for their children.
Cultural diversity is a feature of the school's proud past and present history where children identify with more than 29 cultural backgrounds.
The school values of:- Respect, Integration, Diversity and Excellence underpin all our interactions and teaching and learning programs.
With the extension to Year 7 the acquisition of another building has allowed the Resource Centre to be relocated and provide space for upper year classes within the main building. There is air conditioning and heating in all areas of the school.
The school also boasts a sitewide wireless network for use by lap-top computers and iPads.
A Multi purpose Hall was completed in 2011 using funding from the Building Education Revolution Commonwealth program. In 2012, the school commenced a lease for a cottage, situated adjacent the newly refurbished Resource Centre on O’Brien Street – to support our capacity to provide parenting programs and playgroups as part of our Children’s Centre program, as well as to provide further capacity for the Out of School Hours Care programs and the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.
