Welcome to Light Pass Primary School

Light Pass Primary is a small R - 7 school situated in the beautiful Barossa Valley.  The school is located 3 km outside of Nuriootpa between Penrice and Kalimna Roads.  It is not a zoned school, and as such has openings for enrolments for students living outside of Light Pass.

We pride ourselves on our ability to support individual learning, in line with our
values of caring, success and responsibility. As such, staff members are continuously exploring ways to facilitate student improvement and education equity. As a small school, our class sizes are kept small enabling teachers to provide a comprehensive learning program which caters for the learning needs of all students.

Information and Communication Technology is well covered, with interactive tvs, a pod of computers and ipads in each classroom.

The school employs a Pastoral Support Worker three days a week to further
support students and their families. There is a history of strong family and community involvement and support of the school.   

The community is especially enthusiastic about our transition program. Students at Light Pass combine with other small schools in the area for sports and arts performances as
well as the high school transition program.  The school has an active playgroup on site.

Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) is provided through the Barossa OSHC.  BOSHC provides quality care (regular, occasional and emergency) for primary school children.  The BOSHC van transports students accessing the program between Light Pass Primary School and the BOSHC program.  Students can access Before and After School Care and the Holiday and Pupil Free Day programs.  For more information on the BOSHC program, phone 85624387 or 0439 626 810.
