Welcome to Point Pearce Aboriginal School
Point Pearce Aboriginal School has a genuine cooperative partnership between
the school and the extended community of Point Pearce, a small Aboriginal community close to Maitland on the Yorke Peninsula. Our school has a safe,
caring and challenging working environment with a focus on celebrating success. We build on the existing pride in Aboriginal culture and heritage and actively promote the Narungga culture. The school caters for children from birth to 8
years of age. Services offered include: Playgroup, Occasional Care, Kindergarten and a Reception to Year two class. The school is well-resourced and all learning areas are air-conditioned. Point Pearce operates within a cooperative decision-making process that allows for inclusiveness of all staff. The school prides itself
on representing the community in a positive manner and supporting parents and students in their life journey. We are part of the Southern Yorke Partnerships
On November 28th 2008, Point Pearce Celebrated
140 years of struggle and success since its
establishment. PPAS joined the community
celebrations, showcasing the fantastic
achievements of the school since inception.
We recognise the importance of celebrating the struggles, changes and growth of the community,
in particular those of the school which continues
to grow and develop despite the many challenges
it has faced over the 140 years.
