About our school

Reidy Park Primary School is located in Mount Gambier, South Australia.

Students from Reception to Year 6 attend our school, with a current enrolment of approximately 580 students and 40 staff members.

Reidy Park Primary School, formerly known as Mount Gambier Primary School, was the original government primary school in the city.

Opened in 1878 at Wehl Street South, Reidy Park Primary School was relocated to its present site on O’Halloran Terrace in 1955. The buildings were designed and constructed as two schools; the primary building in the mid-fifties and the junior primary building in the early sixties.

In 1970, the two schools were amalgamated and in 1998 were consolidated on the one site.
