Welcome to Berri Primary School

​Berri Primary offers a fantastic experience where we partner with families to come together and provide the very best opportunities for our children; promoting our values of Trust, Respect, Responsibility and Integrity, so that students may thrive in both their academic and social and emotional learning.

Through positive and supportive relationships, staff work closely with children in fostering a strong sense of community and collaboration across the school. Behaviour support is based on positive reinforcement methods with consistency in language and procedures, along with a big focus on celebration.

Students are supported by our Well-being Leader and enjoy specialist instruction in Science, PE and Vietnamese. The introduction of The Resilience Project in 2024 will see a new and improved focus on well-being ensuring all students feel safe, included and valued, through increased resilience, emotional literacy and student voice platforms.

Evidence-based learning programmes provide children with opportunities to aim high and persist through challenge. An explicit direct instruction pedagogical focus, combined with strong intervention support approaches (led by a specialist teaching and learning coordinator) allows each of our young people to achieve personal success and growth. Learner agency gives students a voice to collaborate as partners in their learning, creating a dynamic and engaging educational experience.

We are proud to promote our Aboriginal Cultural Centre of excellence where Aboriginal children build on their cultural identity and are empowered to access and fully participate in learning experiences.

We have a fabulous on site OSHC and playgroup, our children have a long-standing record of success at SAPSASA events, they participate in the Festival of Music every year and enjoy a positive and nurturing buddy programme – some of the ways we promote a sense of belonging and teamwork at Berri.

We are very proud of our school and achievements and welcome you to discover more by way of a call or visit to discuss how we can support your child’s educational journey.

Kindest regards
