Principal’s Welcome

Our current school priorities have been developed around a vision for the future of our students. We expect our students to become active, informed participants in the Booleroo Centre District School community, and hope that the learning journey at this school will serve them well into their future.

Booleroo Centre District School is a partnership of students, staff, parents and community who encourage and scaffold every student to be the best that they can be. “Strive to Excel” is our motto for now and into the future. A culture of high expectations is sustained through a caring and supportive environment.

Thank you for taking time to visit our web-site. We hope it provides you with the answers you are seeking. Feel free to contact one of our helpful staff for any other enquires you may have. We encourage you to visit our school, and consider us as an outstanding local option for the education of local students.
