ORROROO AREA SCHOOL


Orroroo Area School services the communities of Orroroo, Black Rock, Carrieton, Pekina, Morchard, Walloway, Dawson, Johnburg, Belton, Willowie and Hammond. Students are transported from a radius of about 50km.

The district supports cereal cropping and pastoral pursuits and the township of Orroroo is the service centre for outlying areas as well as an extremely healthy flow of tourists. Generally the district is prosperous, School Card numbers are modest and families are stable. The township has an extremely positive feel about it which also permeates the school.

The school has a history of academic and sporting success of which the community is extremely proud. There is an expectation that students will be able to complete their formal schooling at Orroroo without undue disadvantage caused by distance, isolation and subject offerings at senior schooling. In fact most kids have no trouble getting work because of the can-do work ethic engendered by this solid community and the high expectations of the staff and parents.
