Milang Campus is situated in the historic town of Milang on the foreshore of Lake Alexandrina. Our main building is 150 years old and is the oldest purpose built building still being used for education in South Australia.
There are currently two classes, R-2 and 3-6 providing high quality education with a community focus. Each class has a dedicated Literacy block with two teachers to ensure all students access the curriculum at their level. Specialist subjects offered at Milang include Indonesian, Music, Technology and PE as well as opportunities for students to join the festival choir, learn an instrument and be involved in SAPSASSA sports events.
Through the hard work and dedication of the Staff, we provide an educational and social environment that nurtures and challenges each child and encourages them to reach their full potential. We achieve this by having high expectations of the students and providing them a safe, happy and trusting atmosphere in which to challenge themselves.
Our success is built on a strong community of students, parents and teachers, who all value the same high standards of education and creative and intellectual endeavour.
We see parents as partners in our work and hope you will become very much part of our community and fully involved in your child’s achievements. We look forward to working with you to provide the best possible education for your child in our care.

Milang Campus Connection
The Campus keeps in touch with its parent community via a fortnightly publication called the Campus Connection. It contains information about upcoming events at the Campus, reports about Campus activities and a “What’s Happening” section that outlines highlights of the past fortnight from each class. The Campus also has a section in the monthly Milang Community News, which is published by the Milang Progress Association. This enables the wider communities of Milang and Clayton the opportunity to stay in tune with what is happening at the Campus. 2017 Campus Connections
