Goodbye Zahli, Connor and Kai! We’ll miss having you at Hospital School SA but we’re also happy after 11 months that you’re able to go home. You’ve had a number of ‘last days’ and today was actually it. Thanks for being a part of HSSA life! ... See MoreSee Less
To all the hospital school staff what an amazing bunch of people you are,you have made our lives so much easier throughout this journey . I know all three of our kid's have totally enjoyed the hospital school and Connor especially is sad to be leaving, but as we said we will be back and will always pop in to say hello. Once again thank you and hopefully the people of south Australia no how lucky we are to have this wonderful school 👏👏
Good luck with your journey home Zahli and family. I bet it will feel fabulous when you get there.
We have shared a journey with you and I must say, it was better because of you. There was always smile and a warm hello.
It’s a double edge sword we are so happy that you guys get to go home and kicked Cancers butt… but sad to see you all go… we are grateful for the new friends we’ve found through the shitty journey of treatment…

Hospital School SA has many students across a school year whether they are here for a day, days, weeks, months or regularly over their schooling. Our long term students are with us for a full school year or more and as a school we have a ‘flux’ community versus a fixed community.
Our parents are an important part of our HSSA family over this time. Today staff at the WCH Campus had a shared lunch to acknowledge Steph and Jason who along with their kids will be leaving us to return to Streaky Bay. On Friday we will acknowledge Zahli, Connor and Kai but today was about Steph and Jase.
Once you’ve been with us you’re always a part of our HSSA family! Thanks Steph and Jase from all of us. ... See MoreSee Less

Will miss you immensely xxx

The latest update for the new Women's and Children's Hospital plans were announced yesterday. This gives us an idea of where Hospital School SA will be located within the hospital and our proximity and access to our main teaching and learning areas. Having outdoor space joined to the school will be fantastic and something new for the HSSA WCH Campus... but wait outdoor space is great but we are even more excited because we will be getting WINDOWS!!!! ...

Frogs and cells you say?!? Well our Flinders Campus was the place to be to find out all things frogs and cells today. Some of the Middle Schoolers at Hospital School SA worked with Bec and Karen on this topic and came up with some very interesting findings. 🐸 🔬🧬 ... See MoreSee Less
At our Lyell McEwin Campus the Hospital School SA team in collaboration with our Lyell McEwin Hospital / SA Health colleagues have initiated some special programs within the Early Years Strategy.
Our new Early Learning Packs have been introduced to young people on the ward as a part of early identification for preschool and kindy. Our dedicated Early Childhood Worker Lauren introduces young people approaching school age to a learning pack themed around a story book.
The pack includes activities that look at creative play, literacy, numeracy and other subject areas. Lauren guides the young people and their parents/carers through the first activity and shows the child and the parents/carers how they can complete the remaining activities together at home. This shows families how parents/carers are their child's first teacher. Children get to take the pack home including their own copy of the chosen story book.
Lauren also provides families with information and contacts for enrollment at kindy and preschool as well as other learning support contacts and information. ... See MoreSee Less
