Airdale Primary School, situated in the regional township of Port Pirie, has a strong focus on learning. Our major priority is literacy and improved pedagogies for literacy teaching and learning. The school motto of 'Achievement for All' is reflected in our broad range of learning programs.

Students' achievements are also celebrated through our school reward program, 'Awesome Airdale'. A variety of alternative success orientated programs allows for personalised learning and includes technology, gardening, cooking, life-skills, and separate boys and girls groups for mainstream literacy and numeracy learning. Specific programs are established for students with special needs. We also have an Out of School Hours Care (OHSC) and vacation program.


Our wellbeing for learning priority is underpinned by five core values.
