Our entire teaching staff is dedicated to the detail and we want to ensure every child achieves to their own potential.
This means ensuring we have a robust system of teaching and support that not only caters to the average (or middle student) – but also the advanced student or the student that needs some extra support.
For learning to take place we need to ensure that every child feels safe, happy and confident within themselves – and so a huge emphasis is placed on a strong wellbeing and support program that achieves just that!
At Rangeview Primary School we believe in the growth and development of the whole child. Education is about supporting students to reach their full potential in all areas of learning – including social and emotional development.
There are different leadership opportunities available for students.
- Buddy classes
- Junior School Councillors
- Peer Mediators
- Year 6 Student Leaders – School Captains, House Leaders, Student Voice, Curriculum Leaders
A strong transition program exists for students from Kindergarten to Foundation, from level to level within the school and from Year 6 to Year 7 which promotes confidence, independence and prepares them for the next stage of their learning.
Kinder to Foundation Transition
Starting school is an exciting time! We aim to provide Pre-Schoolers with positive school experiences through our transition program.
Children and parents will have the opportunity to become familiar with our school facilities, meet the Foundation teachers and experience fun, engaging learning activities that introduce them to the environment and structure of school.
Please contact us to book your child into the transition program.
Level 6 to Year 7 Transition
Rangeview Primary School will provide families with information about enrolment to secondary school early in the Level 6 year.
Moving schools is probably a bit daunting for you and your child. It’s quite common though and we are well aware of how to make the move smooth for you and your child.
If we have notice that you are coming then we will invite your child in for a session in his/her new grade prior to the official start. Your child will be paired with a buddy with similar interests and a similar disposition – for example, if your child is shy we will make sure she/he is buddied up with some kids who are similar – as we don’t want them to feel overwhelmed.
We have meetings with the parents to find out if there is anything special we need to know and we will also meet with the child so we can learn their feelings about the move too.
Every case is different, so whatever the reason for your move – we will ensure that your child is always looked after and cared for through their transition.
Rangeview Primary School offers many and various lunchtime activities during the day and at different times throughout the year.
- Lego Club
- First Lego League
- Science Club
- Hip Hop or Cheer Leading
- Chess Club
- Rock Band
- Kelly Sports
- Story Time in the Library
