Ramco Primary School is a small school with a family atmosphere. It is situated approximately 170 kilometres from Adelaide along the banks of the River Murray in the South Australian Riverland and serves a community that is dependent on agriculture and horticulture.
Our current student enrolment is approximately 60, enabling closer relationships amongst students and staff as well as more individualised teaching and learning programs. We have a team of dedicated staff members, all of whom work together to provide the best possible learning environment for the students in our small and supportive class groups.
The school has a strong culture based firmly on the overarching values of respect, responsibility, resilience and honesty. By nurturing growth mindsets, students are given every opportunity to become powerful learners in their own right, as staff support them to become independent problem solvers, self-regulators and resilient learners.
At Ramco Primary School, our aim is to provide every student with educational experiences which will equip them to continue to actively participate in the process of life-long learning. Every student is supported and challenged to be engaged in learning and to achieve their personal best.
