About our school
Our public school is located in the inner northern region of Adelaide, South Australia. We have a steady enrolment of about 400 children from Reception through to Year 7. We also have a Preschool, with an enrolment of about 60 children who attend across the week. We celebrate our cultural diversity, with over half of our students holding English as a second language.
The school has a strong peace ethos and holds accreditation by United Nations as a Peace School. Our Peace Code is embedded as part of our learning which is speaking kindly, caring for myself and others, doing the right thing, finding help, turning things around, being brave and being a peacemaker.
Developing literacy and numeracy skills and knowledge is fundamental to learning. We have two main priorities – reading comprehension and student engagement. We are committed to providing opportunities for every student to achieve great things. This website shows some of the high powered learning that takes place at Northfield Primary School.
Walk to Tokyo 2021
As part of our celebration of the 2020 Olympics (in 2021) our whole school set out to walk the distance from Northfield Primary School to Tokyo, Japan. We did this over the weeks of the year and kept a tally of how far each student, class and staff member walked. The video below captures our opening ceremony and celebration. Thanks to Inacio from @Nachos_Film (find him on instagram) for kindly capturing our morning and putting together the video.
Science EXPO 2020
Due to COVID-19 our science expo has looked different in 2020. Watch the video below about this year’s expo and learn more about science at Northfield.
