Our Story

Nestled in Tea Tree Gully, Saint David's continues to offer a competitive local primary school option for families living in the North Eastern suburbs. Nearby Hancock Road provides an easy link to the Golden Grove area and for hills families travelling in to the metropolitan area from around Houghton, Birdwood and Kersbrook, the school is conveniently placed and easily accessible. With current enrolments at around 330 students, Saint David's offers a good medium sized option for parents who don't want their child to get lost in a larger setting.

Saint David's Parish School first opened in February 1977 with 49 students as a co-educational, Reception to Year 7, Catholic Primary School.

From its foundation in 1977 until 1998, Saint David’s Parish School was under the guidance of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Since 1998, the school has been staffed by educational professionals.

The school maintains strong links to our Parish of Tea Tree Gully, with the Parish Church situated next door to the school grounds.

Priests are actively involved in the school community and help celebrate the many special liturgical occasions that are part of the school calendar.

The enduring school Mission is to ensure that all students are provided a quality education, rich in Christian values which enable them to become strong community role models now and in the future.

From the start of 2019, in line with the direction of Catholic Education in SA and public schools in other states across Australia, Saint David's transitioned our Year 7 students to a secondary school setting. The school now offers Reception to Year 6.
