Rossmoyne Primary School (5405)

School Overview

We are an Independent Public School catering for students from Pre-primary to Year 6 and enjoy a close working relationship with the nearby Rossmoyne Community Kindergarten. Our school purpose is 'To inspire lifelong learners who strive for personal excellence and community engagement'. Our vision is 'Together we empower global citizens' and our school values are 'integrity', 'respect', 'courage' and 'belonging'.

Our students participate in a broad and balanced curriculum, including lessons delivered by specialist teachers in Physical Education, Chinese and Music. Our extensive music program includes a school choir, band, orchestra and instrumental tuition for selected students. We also offer an excellent Physical Education program and our students participate in a wide variety of sports and competitions which contributes to their health and well-being. Selected students also compete in Languages (Chinese) competitions. Our school offers our students a range of extra-curricular activities including excursions and programs such as the 'River Rangers', out of school care and a range of sustainability initiatives. Several community groups also access our school facilities to provide additional opportunities for our students including tennis and keyboard lessons before and after school. Our school has a range of facilities including extensive play areas, tennis courts, cooking facilities, an art room, a music room, a covered assembly area, a nature playground, vegetable gardens and our school library which is currently being developed into a multimedia centre.

In our rapidly changing world in which technology plays a significant part, the integration and application of learning technologies as tools for learning play a key role in the achievement of student outcomes. Our Pre-primary to Year 3 students participate in a shared iPad program and our Year 4 to 6 students participate in a one-to-one device program. Our focus on higher order thinking, inquiry skills and collaborative learning opportunities also assist us in preparing our students for their future careers.

A strong sense of community exists within our school and the relationships between children, parents and staff are based on care, mutual respect and open communication in a safe and supportive environment. Our P&C (Parents and Citizens) Association contributes greatly to the development of our school in both spirit and resources and our School Board is an important and valued decision making group in our school.
