Rosalie Primary School (5404)

School Overview

Rosalie Primary School caters for Kindergarten to Year 6 children and has been an integral part of the Shenton Park community for 116 years.

Rosalie has a proud academic tradition, and is recognised as a school which maximises learning opportunities to ensure children develop a broad range of skills and strong sense of values. As a result, performances in national testing consistently show academic achievement well above State and national means. Our school has also been recognised as being in the nation's top one hundred primary schools and top fifty comprehensive primary schools.

In 2015 our school was awarded the inaugural Governor's STEM Award for Leadership Excellence and in 2016 the school received the Meritorious Award. In 2015 and 2016 Rosalie Primary was named as one of four finalists in the WA Education Awards category for WA Primary School of the Year. These were fitting rewards for the very hard work that the school and community put into ensuring our students gain a truly first class education. In 2019 our Year 5 teacher was a finalist for Primary Teacher of the Year in the WA Education Awards.

Student at Educational Risk programs cater for the extension and remediation needs of individual students. In particular, ongoing review of student performance has led to a focus on meeting the needs of students identified as high achievers. Over the past seven years, gold medals have been awarded to our students in the International Competitions and Assessments for Schools across the areas of digital technologies, science, maths, English, writing and spelling.

The school has a strong musical tradition with programs augmented by senior class musicals, senior and junior choirs, a school community band and an instrumental instruction program in flute, violin, cello and clarinet for children from Years 3 to 6.

Participation in a wide range of community activities includes inter-school swimming, athletics, cross-country and team sports. In 2018 Rosalie Primary School was the inaugural winner of School Sport's WA Most Active Primary School Award, and was also named State champion in the Red Ball Tennis competition, the State Softball champions and the Girls Futsal Champions. Special programs include environmental sustainability projects such as a vegetable garden, a chicken run and paper recycling. Rosalie PS was the recipient of this award again in 2019.

Our staff are experienced, caring and innovative and we have specialist teachers in music, drama, art physical education and French.

The Rosalie community displays a high level of educational awareness and our school enjoys strong and active parental support. Parents are true partners in the education of children. Over time an outstanding range of high quality educational opportunities have been developed, including the annual the Year 6 musicals, the Rosalie Writers' Festivals and the innovative award winning ANZAC Dawn service.

Our school is a blend of old and new architecture and is located on spacious grounds adjacent to Rosalie Park, providing an ideal learning environment. Our facilities include a new science/art specialist area, music and library facilities, and an enclosed assembly area which has been upgraded due to the generosity of our P&C fund raising.
