Strive to Achieve
Rye Primary School is nestled between Port Philip Bay and the rugged back beaches of the Mornington Peninsula, approximately 80 kilometres south of Melbourne. The school values a commitment to student learning and wellbeing, high expectations for all, a shared vision, best teaching practice, professional learning and our community.
The school prides itself on having a strong focus on delivering a world class education for our students. By working closely with our local community our students are able to participate in a range of experiences to extend our students knowledge and skills. These experiences include environmental and water programs, coding through the use of sphero robots, golf coaching at a high standard golf venue, a bike mechanics program, social Inclusion events and art projects. We continue our close affiliation with many local service clubs and are supported by local businesses, volunteers and charities. In 2019 we held our second annual Spring Gala, a social event supported brilliantly by our school families and wider community. Our students are encouraged to be active participants in the wider community and take part in events such as ANZAC and Remembrance Day, Seal the Loop, isea,icare, environment days, festivals and sporting and cultural events. Through involvement and performance in these events our students learn skills and social behaviours appropriate to the situations. Our exceptional students demonstrate our school values of Respect, Integrity and Resilience in everything they do.
Rye Primary School students are encouraged to be independent learners and creative thinkers whose values enable them to be productive citizens in a global community. The school provides a relevant, engaging and differentiated teaching and learning program in a supportive environment that fosters deep thinking, creativity and independence. At Rye Primary School, we are proud of our students and community and the achievements they demonstrate.
