Template:Use Australian English Gawler Primary School is a state school in South Australia opened in January 1878. It is located on the edge of the historic Church Hill State Heritage Area of Gawler. The Gothic-styled bluestone main building and the original headmaster's residence (added in 1881) are listed on the now-defunct Register of the National Estate.

Opened as the Gawler Public School, it was built by William Tardiff to the design of architect E. J. Wood at a cost of 4,695 pounds and could accommodate 600 pupils. The first headmaster was E. L. Burton who had been headmaster of St. George's Church of England Day School.[1]
