From the Principal

Welcome to School of the Nativity, a Catholic Parish Co-educational Primary School that is located in the southern foothills of Adelaide in the suburb of Aberfoyle Park.

Our motto ‘Families Living Loving Learning’, reflects the importance that is placed on community, connectedness and belonging. To bind this together there is a vibrant network of relationships to support each other in a Catholic Christian educational context. Our aim is to be welcoming to all where we encourage students, parents and the staff to become actively involved in the life of school. This creates a positive and optimistic atmosphere where Nativity is a fun place to be.

We are a school that cares for the individual and we endeavour to inspire within each student a passion for life-long learning and to achieve personal excellence. The learning programmes are based upon contemporary understanding of the teaching and learning process where the child is at the heart of all that we do. There is a strong emphasis upon Well Being programmes to support the students in their quest to discover and come to know their own identity and how they can become contributing members within society. Students have many and varied opportunities to be involved in the extra curricula programmes that support the learning beyond the classroom.

We are in the unique situation where we are part of a campus sharing physical and human resources with Thiele Primary School and Pilgrim Primary school. The collaborative arrangement known as the Aberfoyle Park Primary School Campus enables the opportunity  for students, staff and the parents to work together to create new and innovative educational programmes and campus related events to support the students from the 3 schools.  We are also blessed with outstanding facilities and spacious play areas to support the learning opportunities offered.

School of the Nativity is part of the South Region of Catholic Schools where there is a pathway  of Catholic schooling from Reception through to Year 12. Students enrolling at Nativity have a guaranteed pathway to either Marymount College, Sacred Heart College or Cabra Dominican College.

Further information about the school is contained within the website. I look forward to you visiting our school where you can see for yourself all Nativity offers as a great place to educate primary aged children.

Many Blessings

Mr Greg Haynes
