Enrolments for Foundation 2019

Welcome to Rowellyn Park Primary School

Widely acknowledged as a school of excellence, Rowellyn Park Primary School provides an engaging curriculum designed to stimulate creativity and build strong foundations in Literacy and Numeracy.
We take pride in the quality of the relationships between our teachers and students, and our teaching strategies are responsive to the needs of each child. The school’s motto “Together We Learn” reflects our commitment to the development of strong educational relationships between our teachers, students and their parents, in a supportive and nurturing environment.
Our learning program is based on the individual learning needs of students. Our topics of study focus on the interests of the students, the Studies of Asia and topics of global relevance. The curriculum provides a balance in developing academic, social and emotional skills preparing students for their present and future learning.

Flexible Groups

The different learning needs of each student are taken into consideration when teachers plan their teaching and learning programs.  A variety of assessment tools are used to identify areas where students need further work, or are showing greater learning.  Focus groups are created within double classes to help cater for these different learning needs.  The members of each group change depending on the needs of the students and the content being covered.  This makes the learning programs specifically targeted, and much more effective and relevant.
Teachers at Rowellyn Park Primary School use flexible groups within their classroom, double grade and year level, to ensure that the curriculum is delivered and taught to their students at their point of need.

Explicit Instruction

Explicit instruction is a structured, systematic and effective approach for teaching academic skills.  It is unambiguous and direct.  Students are guided through the learning process with clear statements about the purpose and rationale for learning, with clear explanations and directions from the teacher.  The learning proceeds in small steps, with frequent checks for student understanding and students are supported with feedback until mastery is achieved.

Teachers at Rowellyn Park use the elements of explicit instruction to provide a learning program that is targeted to the needs of each individual learner.

Personalised Learning

Teachers at Rowellyn Park use personalised learning to tailor the curriculum to meet the individual needs of learners.  They use assessment to identify the learning needs of each student, and use a variety of teaching approaches and learning environments to help each student achieve their personal best.

School Values

The school values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Reflection form the backbone of what is expected from students at Rowellyn Park.  They feature heavily in the Yard and Classroom Stages of Behaviour and Rowellyn Rulz.

Student Wellbeing

Developing the Values of respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Reflection are just as important as developing skills in Literacy and Numeracy.

We use a range of programs to complement the classroom instruction.  In the Senior School, The Resilience Project forms the core of or Wellbeing Program.

In 2018 we welcomed Murphy our Support Dog to work with our students to provide support and comfort when necessary.

Out of School Hours Care

Rowellyn Park Primary School operates an Out of School Hours Childcare (OSHC) service. OSHC incorporates vacation, curriculum day and before and after school care.
