Our School

Rossmoyne Primary School is an Independent Public School situated in the suburb of Rossmoyne, adjacent to the Canning River in the southern suburbs of the Perth metropolitan area. The school was officially opened in 1965 after beginning operations during 1964 with 67 students and three staff. We are now a well-established local intake school community which enrols 442 Pre-primary to Year 6 students.  A community kindergarten is located nearby and although not formally part of Rossmoyne Primary School, we enjoy a close working relationship. We pride ourselves on being a ‘school of choice’ and achieving consistently high academic and non-academic results. Our school purpose is 'to enhance each student's academic, social, creative, physical and personal development, thereby enabling them to fulfil their potential and contribute to the development of society'.

 

Students at Rossmoyne Primary School 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 Young Engineers’ and ‘River Rangers’.  Several community groups also access our school facilities to provide additional opportunities for our students including tennis, keyboard and Hindi lessons before and after school.  Our school has a range of facilities including extensive play areas, tennis courts, areas for cooking, an art room, a music room, a covered assembly area, an aquaponica area, a nature playground, an edible garden 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 Macbook 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.
