Rockingham Lakes Primary School (5778)

School Overview

Rockingham Lakes Primary School opened in Port Kennedy in 2002. Enrolment is currently around 600 from Kindergarten to Year 6. The Peel Language Development School is co-located on the site.

Two striking sculptures reflect the notion of one school with two schools at its heart. The primary school caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 6 in a modern cluster design featuring six teaching blocks, multi-purpose covered area, library and the school administration block. All classrooms are air-conditioned as are the demountables on site. Tennis courts, large oval, covered assembly area and netball courts provide activity areas. The physical education program includes daily fitness to build skills and encourages students to be active and healthy.

The focus on values and pastoral care is reflected through the school's award winning BE PROUD program, now shared across the campus. There is a strong focus on early intervention through the school based GOLD (Guided Oral Language Development) program and a Breakthrough Reading Program which supports reluctant readers through parent and community member volunteers. Our highly professional staff have a strong commitment to collaboration across the school, maintaining an environment where students, parents and staff feel connected and are able to live up to our motto of 'Be Proud'.
