Welcome to Reynella Primary School. Our school has a long and rich history and in 2018 celebrated its 160th birthday. We currently have approximately 540 students enrolled. Despite its strong connection to the past Reynella Primary School is very much focussed on supporting students to cope with the growing demands of the 21st century. We aim to “Build a culture of thinking within our community to develop successful learners, people and citizens.”
Our school operates in a happy, collaborative educational setting where our students play an active role in their own learning. We offer a rich and safe learning environment and have an enduring focus on building the essential skills of Literacy and Numeracy because without these higher order learning cannot be developed. We support our students to be problem solvers who can think creatively and critically as well as resourceful users of learning technologies. Strong thinking skills are the building blocks that enable students to better know, influence and shape their world.
We explicitly teach our students how to learn as well as what to learn through our Mindsets for Learning: Resilience, Reflection, Focus, Responsibility and Collaboration.
We believe it is crucial to provide opportunities for students to influence their learning in and beyond the classroom and create a culture where everyone inspires and encourages each other. We have four Student Action Teams: Environment, Communication, Citizenship and STEM, that meet regularly to contribute to many aspects of school life.
