As a Catholic school, there are a number of pathways both to School of the Nativity and from the school at the end of Year 6 or Year 7.
Pathways to School of the Nativity
Children come to School of the Nativity from the many Preschools and Child Care Centres in the local area, including Aberfoyle Park, Flagstaff Hill, O’Halloran Hill, Happy Valley, Chandlers Hill, Coromandel Valley and Reynella. The Aberfoyle Park Campus Preschool located on Campus works closely with us and the other Campus schools.
Pathways from School of the Nativity
Students graduating from School of the Nativity have the option of enrolling at; Sacred Heart College – a co-educational college with the Marist Brothers charism for students from Year 7 to Year 12.
Cabra Dominican College at Cumberland Park – a co-educational college with the Dominican charism for students from Year 7 to 12.
Alternatively, some families may choose to transition to a Department of Education and Child Development (DECD) high school. Our nearest DECD high school is Aberfoyle Park High School. All DECD high schools in metropolitan Adelaide are zoned. A student’s zoned school is determined according to their permanent and primary place of residence. Check your government high school zone here. There is the further option of Independent Schools.
It is a matter of choice for parents. All the secondary schooling options have Open Days. It is suggested that parents attend the tours to determine the pathway that best suits their child’s needs and family circumstances.
