Principal's Message

Our vision is to develop, in partnership with the whole community, an effective, caring and dynamic learning community.

The learning community is founded on an educational philosophy centred on the child, and grounded in the belief that all students can learn and all students have the right to become effective learners.

A strong partnership between staff, the students and their parents is important for this vision to be achieved.

Rose Park Primary School provides innovative programs and positive learning experiences (based on traditional values) that provide a solid educational foundation. We are very proud of the achievements brought about by our committed teaching and non-teaching staff, and supportive school community. We enjoy high student achievement, well-behaved and focused students, quality teaching, dedicated and enthusiastic parents, and School Governing Council committee members and Parents and Friends, working hard to improve the school for our students. We share strong links with our Old Scholars Association and this year we proudly celebrate our 125th anniversary. I look forward to sharing with you, the many celebrations and milestones that your child/ren will achieve here at Rose Park Primary School.

New RPPS website is currently under construction. We look forward to an exciting user-friendly web presence.

Our current focus is on learning through inquiry, and Information and communication technologies to enhance the inquiry processes. The school has a wireless internet service, and makes available laptops (PC and Apple) for student use as well as Apple computers in our Performing Arts Suite. Year 6/7 students are encouraged to bring their own laptops. Additionally, every classroom is fitted with interactive whiteboards, document cameras and flip videos.

The school is an authorised  International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program World School, delivering the IBPYP from reception to year 7 students and is part of a strong IB network within South Australia. Our international mindedness through being a world school also sees a growing number of intenational familes attracted to the school, currently from over 40 cultures. The school is a member of the Association of Australasian International Baccalaureate Schools providing a network of IB schools for support and professional development.

During 2014, the school embarked on a long term plan to maintian our position as a school of high achievement and outstanding practice, while also looking to continue to develop our facilities and resources to enhance every learning opportuinty. This is now reflected in our 2014-25 Strategic Plan. Each year as we achieve our milestones the plan will be reviewed to reflect the journey and our ongoing agenda for improvement. We thank the staff, the Governing Council and the parent comminity for the consultation and input in developeing this longer term view for our school

The school has a strong focus on after-school sport and we offer Japanese and music as specialist subjects. More than 85% students in the school from year 3-7 play instruments as part of our very well known music program, which includes choirs, bands, ensembles and an orchestra - who all perform regularly.
We also have an active Old Scholars Association providing a strong pastoral care role in our school.
