We are a Lighthouse school for implementing the social emotional and learning skills program Second Step. This explicitly teaches students the skills of respect, empathy, learning skills, decision making and problem solving skills.
A number of community based organisations utilise our grounds after school which is a great way for both parents and students to continue to develop their friendships. These include netball, karate, Active after school program and of course, our wonderful Before School Care, After School Care and Holiday Program which is run by Camp Australia.
We strongly encourage parental involvement in classroom helpers, Parent and Friends Association and School Council. We see our parents as our partners in our student’s education and value parental input.
We encourage our students to make the most of their local community and to assist in this, we have
Excursions to the beach for environmental studies and beach safety
Involvement with the Save the Plover Nests at the back beach organisation
Innovative yachting program with the Rye Yacht Club
Strong community connections with the Rye Historical Society
Sealing the Loop program
Just to name a few.
If you would like to come and see us in action, please don't hesitate to ring the school. We would love to meet you.
