A school near the sea
We acknowledge that SPW is on the original land of the Kaurna people, whose territorial boundaries stretched from Cape Jervis to Port Wakefield.
Glenelg is South Australia’s birthplace, where the first ship The Buffalo carrying Governor Hindmarsh and his free settlers disembarked.
On December 28, 1836, they proclaimed South Australia a colony under the Old Gum Tree which is located not far from SPW, and Proclamation Day services are held here every year.
Glenelg is one of South Australia’s most popular holiday destinations and its historic jetty and trams, restaurants and cafes, shops and parks give the area a relaxed seaside character.
Parents visiting from the country, interstate or overseas will find an extensive range of accommodation and tourist attractions.
The fresh sea air and extensive play spaces and grounds ensure our students grow up as healthy, vigorous individuals in a close knit, safe, suburban community.
SPW is just 30 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD by car or tram.
