Hallett Cove School is located in a southern coastal suburb of Adelaide on an attractive campus with magnificent sea views. The school is only a few minutes’ walk from Hallett Cove Conservation Park, one of the most famous geological sites in Australia with international significance. The shopping centers Hallett Cove, Westfield Marion and Colonnades are also nearby.
Hallett Cove School has a family atmosphere and offers a wide range of popular courses including marine biology, drama, music, photography and design.
The focus is otherwise on information and communication technology, marine science and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). As part of South Australia’s STEM programme, $3.5 million has just been invested in the school, which is particularly beneficial to innovative and inspiring learning areas.
In photography, students access specialist studios where they learn industry skills from an industry professional. Using digital imaging students explore a number of shooting types from Still Life through to Sports & Action. Students have opportunities to engage in extra curricula workshops and excursions.
In Drama students participate in workshops on theatrical innovators and performance techniques. Drama also provides students with the opportunity to perform in front of other year levels; participate in evening performances, and in an Arts Showcase, and end of year productions. Apart from December, the school’s own productions are also staged in July.
Every year in August Hallett Cove School takes a ski trip to Mount Hotham near the Snowy Mountains.
