Welcome to Hawker Area School
For the people of South
Australia's northern Flinders Ranges, Hawker Area School
offers comprehensive education for students from Reception to Year 12. The school
is approximately 400km away from Adelaide. Our mission is to help students achieve
the best possible outcomes in a nurturing and inclusive environment.
Small classes enable us to closely monitor student progress and
tailor the teaching
program to suit students' individual learning styles. We have a particular focus on
literacy, numeracy and science but also teach Indonesian and the Adnyamathanha language. The school participates in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.
We are an Active After School community and also have an Active Play
children from birth to 8 years. The senior secondary curriculum is strengthened by
the inclusion of Open Access subjects and school-based apprenticeships. The school's involvement in the Pichi Richi Trade Training Centre Consortium also provides additional scope for vocational education and training.
