East Marden Primary School is a sought after school in the North Eastern suburbs of Adelaide. With a capacity management plan in place, the school has a population of approximately 720 students representing a diverse range of cultural groups. Our delivery of the Australian Curriculum is through a student-centred inquiry approach, giving students the opportunity to  think, become global citizens  and find relevance to their own experiences. Inclusive teaching and learning ensures that all learners can achieve success and improvement while at school.

The school has large, green grounds and has 2 nature play areas for students to use creatively as they play outside.

We believe that a child’s thirst for life-long learning begins in the early years of schooling through the fostering of an inquiring mind, a positive attitude, confidence, resilience and a growth mindset. These beliefs are maintained through the years at East Marden PS, culminating in students who are ready to become independent learners in secondary contexts.

We are very proud of the achievements of students at East Marden Primary brought about by our committed leadership team, teaching and non-teaching staff, and supportive school community. We enjoy and celebrate high student achievement from engaged and polite students who are interested in being their best selves.



The East Marden Primary School community values respect, creativity, kindness and perseverance.


Learners are empowered to connect and thrive in a global community
