Welcome to Rose Park Primary School
Rose Park Primary was established in 1893 in a picturesque inner suburban location only minutes from the city centre. The school is housed in the main building built in 1893. Our main teaching area was erected in 1923. A church building, built in 1899, houses our specialist music programme while the Centenary Hall is a modern addition. In 2010, the school opened our new i-centre, a large multi-purpose resource and inquiry facility, that also houses four upstairs classrooms.
Our school is zoned, and as it continues its
history as a well respected and very popular high performing school, the zone of
right is enforced to keep enrolments at manageable levels. There are over 540
students currenlty enrolled across 20 classes.
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 35 cultures.
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.
The school now has an app for iPhone or Androids. The app allows parents to stay in communication with the school through receiving text messages. For instructions on downloading the app. please click here
