We work hard to create an environment where we develop the whole child, to lead positive change for the world God desires.

Welcome from our Principal

Give your child a bright and inspired start at St Raphael’s School. We support and champion our students to take charge of their learning, to know what to do when they don’t know what to do, and to be at the helm of their successful futures. We are a small quality school with all the benefits of a large school, offering multisensory literacy programs, numeracy programs that extend our students' abilities, and the use of an on-site sensory suite. Our robust teaching and range of extra curricular activities allow our students to become well-rounded, socially active graduates who take on secondary school with enthusiasm. We are proud of our co-educational school from Reception to Year 6, on bustling Glen Osmond Road in Parkside. Come for a tour, we can’t wait to meet you! 

The top three reasons our families choose us are:

  1. Our warm community makes children feel safe and valued.
  2. Our staff know the children personally, and ensure academic success.
  3. Our expectations on behaviour, strong social skills, and respect to all members of the community are valued.


"I've had a real sense of community here. All the mums and dads get on, it's a nice size where you get to know everybody, and it's a great location. You're near the Glen Osmond Rd, the main artery into town and there's a really great community vibe here."
