About Us

Our Staff
Our teaching staff comprise of experienced and enthusiastic teachers, both permanent full-time and contracted part-time. We undertake significant professional development to ensure the best possible practice for student learning. Complementing the teaching staff, we employ two experienced SSO’s to support finance, administration and student support / intervention. We also have a Pastoral Care Worker who supports Wellbeing initiatives across the school.
Parent Participation
Parents have opportunities to engage with the school in a range of ways from being on Governing Council, helping at fundraising events, helping with the nature play development or supporting students in classrooms.
Our students organise fundraisers for both school needs and for contributions to significant causes in the community. We also work well in conjunction with the Mid Murray Council and Mid Murray Family Connections.

We are part of the Barossa Partnership, together with Nuri Children’s Centre, High School and Primary School; Tanunda PS and Kindy; Angaston PS and Kindy; Keyneton PS, Cambrai AS; Greenock Primary School. We have agreed partnership directions and often connect on Professional Development days.

Truro Primary School has a full sized gym which contains a full sized basketball court, an undercover tabled area, two tennis courts, library, five learning areas and an administration block. In addition, we have a vegetable and fruit garden and are establishing a Nature Playground as well as the community playground. We also have our own 12 seater mini-bus used for local excursions and hired by other local schools.
Each Friday morning we run a Playcentre for pre-school children and their families to provide an opportunity for children to connect with others through play and learn experiences. We are looking into establishing a Family Day Care before and after school care.
The older students get many opportunities to participate in SAPSASA (SA Primary Sport Association SA) sport competing against other schools in the state. In 2021 we entered a team of Year 5-7 girls to compete in SAPSASA Basketball competition.
Each year we apply for ‘Sporting Schools’ grants to allow the students to participate in and learn different sports that they normally would not have access to.
Music Lessons

At Truro Primary students have access to learning to play the drums or piano with private lessons once a week based on site. Lessons are provided by qualified, professional non-staff teachers.

We hold camps for Year 3 – 6 students in a variety of environments every second year. Our last camp was at ‘The Bend’ in 2021.
