Welcome to Eudunda Area School.
When we enrol the child, we enrol the family! Our mission is to work in close partnership with families to provide the highest quality education and care. Our priority is to ensure children enjoy school and are successful.
At Eudunda Area School we provide a safe and inclusive supporting learning environment, where we strive to foster a positive and productive mindset through our School values of Commitment, Understanding, Respect, Integrity, Responsibility and Friendship.
