I extend a warm welcome to you and your family to Rowville Primary School.
“Learning starts in infancy, long before formal education begins and continues throughout life”.
Rowville Primary is a dynamic learning community that has at its core positive and constructive relationships where the expectation is high... learning is relevant, deep and real... where structure and support facilitates progress for every student. There is a strong emphasis on striving for personal best and on the holistic development of the student.
Students at Rowville Primary are confident, competent and well-rounded individuals who are encouraged to develop a love of learning together with the skills, resources and motivation to fully experience lifelong education. Rowville Primary provides high quality education through a relevant and stimulating curriculum in a secure and purposeful environment. We integrate digital pedagogies throughout the curriculum. Classroom spaces are carefully organised to support learning. Our well-resourced facilities and beautiful grounds create a sense of place.
The people in our community make our school a special place to be. Encouraging and affirming relationships define our learning community. Our teachers are highly talented and dedicated. They work in collaboration to develop a school culture that values teaching and learning. They encourage all students to strive to achieve their best with their academic learning, social skills, school spirit and sense of service to others.
Fostering a strong partnership between the family and the school through clear and continuous communication is a key element in students’ success at Rowville Primary. All parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education and in school events and decision making opportunities.
Our programs revolve around a strong commitment to rigour in English and Mathematics and the provision of diverse specialist programs including Inquiry units that provide opportunities for analytical, creative and reflective thinking. Our programs include environmental science; an extensive sporting program; a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen; Italian; Beyond Boundaries Adventure Program and Performing Arts. Senior students are offered the opportunity to participate in a biennial cultural tour of Italy.
We aspire to develop students who will thrive in the new millennium. We understand that students need to have greater thinking and problem solving abilities and be more self-motivated than ever before. Our teachers support and guide our students to be thinkers and enquirers, who wonder and pose questions.
Our school promotes a set of values which empowers students to make positive contributions to the school and the wider communities. Our students live and learn by our values: Respect, Pride, Responsibility and Perseverance. As an accredited DET International School (CRICOS 00861K) we welcome students from around the world. We celebrate the diversity of our community.
