Our School

Facilities

Romaine Park Primary School is situated in the leafy parklands, just below Parklands High School and close to Romaine Reserve. Our school has been at this site since 2011. Our buildings are modern and inviting and we are surrounded by beautiful grounds. In the last two years, we have made some major changes to our playground to include swings, slides, climbing walls and a more natural outlook. We offer classes the opportunity to plant their own gardens in the school garden and have a lovely Aboriginal garden that is newly established with bush tucker plants and used as an outdoor educational resource.

We have dedicated play areas for our youngest students in Kindergarten and two other areas for our Early Childhood and Primary students.

Our classrooms are designed to support student learning, with some of our rooms being designed to be opened up to create larger learning spaces.

Student leadership

Each year our Grade sixes are given the opportunity to become Leaders in the school. They can nominate for the following:

  • School Leaders
  • Senior Leaders
  • Sports Leaders
  • Library Leaders

Part of their duties is to support and act as role models for younger students; plan, organise and run fundraising activities; assist in school wide activities; encouraging reading and provide regular reading activities.

Students who nominate for these roles are encouraged to write and present speeches then an election is held.

Throughout the year, students in other grades are given leadership opportunities within their classes.

The Learning Centre

The learning centre is a dedicated space for eligible children with Autism Spectrum Disorder accessible to students in grades 3-6. The program helps ensure students reach their learning potential and independence while improving social skills and developing self-regulatory abilities. Please contact the school for placement and eligibility information.
