Our History

School of the Nativity was originally one of four schools established as part of the Aberfoyle Park Primary School Campus. The founding schools were School of the Nativity (Catholic), Pilgrim School (Uniting Church), Spence and Heysen (Department of Education and Child Development).

The Aberfoyle Park Primary School Campus was opened in 1982 where four schools shared one Campus, resources and administrative facilities, but each kept it’s own identity. Each school was built originally to cater for approximately 180 students with future additions planned to allow for moderate expansion.

The Aberfoyle Park Primary School Campus was unique for its time as being the first time that Government and non-Government educational sectors had cooperated and shared facilities and resources in this way.

Today three schools remain on Campus – School of the Nativity, Pilgrim School and Thiele Primary School (Department of Education and Child Development). While still maintaining individuality the three schools now work together as one sharing educational programs, facilities and specialist staff for a unique and diversified learning experience.
