These values are integral to the way we work, act and communicate, both as students and staff. Our school aims to cater for the full spectrum of our unique student cohort.
Alawa Primary School is located in the northern suburbs of Darwin. The school caters for children from Preschool (who can start at the beginning of a school year provided they turn 4 by the 30th June) to Year 6.
Alawa was established in 1970. In 2006, a $2.1 million project opened called Stage 1. Classrooms were designed to enhance our vision of modern, engaging learning spaces.
