Hospital School SA is a partnership between the Department for Education and the Women's and Children's Health Network, and provides educational programs by focusing on personalised learning through targeted teaching for students and young people.
Celebrating 90 years in 2020, Hospital School SA has continued to provide learning for young people within the Women's and Children's Hospital.
Hospital School SA provides educational programs by focusing on personalised learning through targeted teaching for students and young people from both the public and private schooling sectors. Inpatients have access to continued learning in the classrooms on the ground floor as well as ward teaching through the hospital. Schooling can be negotiated for outpatients unable to attend their own school and also for school-aged siblings of country/interstate patients.
The Kaurna name for the Hospital School is Kukuwardli Piipawardli, which means "Place of learning and education".
Hospital School SA delivers the Early Years Learning Framework, Australian Curriculum and SACE in a classroom setting and via teaching on the wards and online for all years:
- Junior Primary: Reception to Year 4
- Middle School: Year 5 to Year 9
- Senior School: Year 10 to Year 12
We collaborate with individual schools and other educational institutions to ensure continuity in students' learning.
