About Cobdogla Primary School
Cobdogla Primary School is a vibrant family orientated school in South Australia’s Riverland, and is part of the Berri-Barmera Partnership. The school was established in 1917 and continues to be the central hub for the community. Our Core values of Respect, Responsibility, Personal Best and Honesty are central to our improvement cycle and guide our plans and actions. Our current student enrolment is 115, enabling closer relationships amongst students and staff as well as more individualised programs. The School provides quality teaching and learning, as we set high standards and expectations in all aspects of the curriculum. Our dedicated professional staff engage students in research-based approaches to increase growth and raise achievement levels for our students in Literacy and Numeracy.
As a ‘KidsMatter’ school, we recognise the importance of good mental health and wellbeing and the impact this has on learning and relationships. We have created a safe, supportive and challenging learning environment where all students are encouraged to reach their personal best.
We provide extra opportunities for student learning through specialist programs such as:
- Environmental Education (YEL, Garden Plots, Chicken managers)
- Leadership (SRC, Year 7 Leaders, Leadership Camp, Halogen)
- Wellbeing (Pastoral Care Worker, KidsMatter)
- The Arts (Choir, Instrumental Music)
- Sport (SAPSASA, Premier’s Be Active Challenge, Sporting Schools)
- LOTE (Specialist Greek Teacher)
- Literacy (Literacy Block, Premier’s Reading Challenge)
- Aboriginal Education (Specialist Aboriginal Education Worker)
The school offers stunning grounds and facilities, including shaded play areas, gym, swimming pool, large oval, playgrounds, and an extensive library. We are well equipped with resources, with the school connected to the NBN, and every student having access to laptops and iPads.
