Welcome to Kongorong
Primary & CPC
Kongorong Primary School is situated
in the Limestone Coast area of South
Australia, approximately 455 kms south
of Adelaide, 29kms from Mount Gambier
and 15 kms from the coast.
The school has dairy farms on two
sides, the Kongorong Sportsmans’ Club
along one boundary, and the Kongorong
township just around the corner.
Students are drawn from the township,
local farms and from the coastal fishing communities of Carpenter Rocks, Pelican
Point and Blackfellows Caves. The two volcanic peaks of Mount Schank and
Mount Gambier are visible from the
Kongorong Primary & CPC
At Kongorong Primary School we aim to provide a high quality education
where all children in the community can achieve their goals in a safe,
nurturing and intellectually creative environment.
We encourage a love of learning, a strong sense of self, respect for others, and the desire to become good global citizens. We promote independence
and responsibility as we guide our students towards a positive future.
The school is very much part of the community. It draws students from
the Kongorong township and local farms and from the communities of
Carpenter Rocks, Pelican Point and Blackfellows Caves.
We cater for children from Kindergarten to Year 7, and most children
graduate to Mount Gambier High School. With a total school population
of 61 children, we offer a friendly, family-style educational setting that
is welcoming and safe, and encourages all students to be active learners.
Our students are a happy, confident, fit and active group of children
who appreciate their opportunities and the Kongorong lifestyle and who
try to live by the school's values of honesty, respect, tolerance,
working together and striving for success.
