Booleroo Centre District School has a long tradition of academic success with greater than state average tertiary entrance results and a well-deserved reputation for sporting excellence. The school is a safe, caring place and aims to meet the needs of all students. Members of staff provide support and flexible learning activities for individual students.
The school is situated within a supportive community and the school’s long-standing motto, ‘Strive to Excel’, is well valued within the district. Recently the school has had a sustainability focus and has endeavoured to embed the principles of sustainability into the curriculum and also within the practical management of the school. With the recent appointment of a committed farm manager, the school has increased its farming enterprise and students are involved in a broad range of rural options.
