Acknowledgement
The Women's and Children's Hospital is located on the traditional lands for the Kaurna people, and we respect their spiritual relationship with their Country. We also acknowledge that the Kaurna people are the custodians of the Adelaide region, and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

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.

  • Preschool
  • Junior Primary: Reception to Year 4
  • Middle School: Year 5 to Year 9

We collaborate with individual schools and other educational institutions to ensure continuity in students' learning.
