Our school values combined with a growth mindset and goal setting is so important to help prepare our students for what lies ahead. We have seen an improvement in the mindset of students over the past few years. At RPS, students have greater resilience and the willingness to give things a go. We see more optimism and self-regulation, which has resulted in non-violent conflict resolution and demonstration of care for each other. I am proud to say we have progressed enormously in these areas and want to thank staff, students and families for all their efforts.
RPS has been showcased at a state level and on the national stage over recent years. Mrs Andrea Lindner was a finalist in the 2016 SA Excellence in Public Education Awards to join a list of previous finalists from our school. I am proud of all staff achievements in teaching and learning and of our environment which has helped to nurture such high quality educators. One of our students, Aizaz Irfan also won the national STEM Video Game Challenge from more than 2000 entries in the Year 5-8 Gamestar Mechanic category.
I am so proud of the school community. I can genuinely say that we leave no stone unturned in looking into each student’s learning. Everyone is committed to providing the best learning environment for our students.
