Welcome to Evanston Primary School


Evanston Primary School is situated in Gawler, thus offering the best of town and country and is considered the gateway to the Barossa Valley.

We are well- resourced and have an activity room, resource centre and gymnasium. In addition to the curriculum framework we have a strong teaching focus on numeracy and literacy with all teachers trained in 'Accelerated Literacy'.  The arts, including drama, dance and choir, are taught by specialist  teachers. Programs are planned to meet students' individual needs.

Our school values of respect, excellence and cooperation are complemented by the 'Circle of Courage', which emphasises belonging, generosity, mastery and independence.  We offer many opportunities for students to develop their academic, sporting and artistic potential. Students are also encouraged to develop their leadership qualities.

The school builds strong relationships with students, parents and the local community. Many volunteers are involved in a wide range of programs which support student learning and an onsite children's centre offers a broad range of birth - preschool programs.
