Community Assistance and Partnerships


During its young history Playford College has developed or enhanced many important and influential partnerships.

We appreciate the support and encouragement of our partners.

    Mayor Glenn Docherty, State MP Lee Odenwalder, Federal MP Matt Burnell, Minister for Education Training and Skills Blair Boyer and their staff members have been very helpful and supportive of the young school. Visits from parliamentarians, particularly during our Book Week celebrations have been welcomed and appreciated.

    Pastor Greg Bensted from St Peter’s Lutheran Church

    St Peter’s Lutheran Church volunteers assist with listening to children read, cooking and planting. They have been regular helpers in many classes. The Church’s pastor has also assisted the College in many ways including practical ways, speaking at the Unity Day celebration and bringing messages of comfort after the Christchurch situation.


    The Northern Adelaide Senior College (NASC) has supported Playford College by allowing us to access its Chemistry Laboratory for senior classes, jointly implementing an English Development course for Playford College parents (prior to the Community Hub) and considering other mutually advantageous projects. These projects enabled our senior students to enrol for TAFE courses and NASC subjects. The College was delighted that the Northern Adelaide Senior College was represented at the Iftar Dinner. 


    The South Australian Police have assisted with cyber advice, letters of support, Book Week reading and visiting classes.

    AISSA is the Association of Independent Schools (SA) and supports the College in so many ways.

    Flinders University is a major supporter of many of our students who appreciate the extra ‘coaching’ in speech and movement. The University provides mature Speech Pathology and Occupational Therapy (OT) students who work with our students individually or in groups. Qualified Speech and OT professionals mentor the University students. Staff recommended students for involvement in this program. This opportunity is also being supported by other community and health professionals.

    Lions Club members donating books and intruments

     The Lions Club of Playford Elizabeth has been very supportive with donating books for classroom reading, funding the professional development of staff, assisting with donations of mulch, volunteering in classrooms, organizing attendance of RAAF personnel at the ANZ AC DAY Service and letters of support. The Club has hosted the Leadership team at a meeting and Playford College was delighted to host Lion’s representatives at its Iftar Dinners. As a support to the Playford College Community Hub, the Lions sourced sewing machines for parents’ workshops.

    Playford Council Mobile Library service enriches students’ reading opportunities every fortnight.


    These, and many other groups and agencies, are supporting Playford College and we are very grateful.



    Why not book a tour?


    School tours are the best way to gain an understanding of all the opportunities offered at Playford College. Our tour for prospective families gives insights into daily school life and how we support Islamic faith. Farsi and Arabic speakers are available to assist with the tour.
