Research Primary School aims to continue its fine tradition of providing excellent learning programs for all our students.
The aim of the school is to provide a high quality education through which children will:
- develop intellectual, physical, aesthetic, social and emotional skills;
- develop skills in decision-making, problem-solving, critical and creative thinking and cooperative learning;
- develop resilience, self-esteem and respect for others;
- develop self-discipline and an awareness of the rights and responsibilities of all members of the school community.
A positive student engagement & wellbeing policy, energetic teachers who regularly participate in professional development and a parent body which provides active and regular support to school programs all contribute to the successful delivery of our educational program.
Students enjoy a safe, creative and stimulating learning environment, with extensive and interesting grounds.

Assessment and Reporting
Our Assessment and Reporting program consists of several components.
We start with a Meet and Greet ‘Launch into Learning” BBQ for all classes at the beginning of the year. Parents can speak with teachers and gather information regarding the curriculum and additional programs for the year. Parent/Teacher/Student interviews run in terms 1 and 4 and formal reporting occurs in terms 2 and 4.
Parents are encouraged to make appointments to speak with teachers about their child’s progress at any time.
School Council provides both Before & After School Care programs for the school community. The Before School Care Program runs from 7.00-8.50am, and the After School Care operates between 3.30pm and 6.30pm each school day.
Both programs offer a range of exciting age appropriate activities under the guidance of the caring staff of the OSHClub. Activities include indoor and outdoor activities, including crafts and games. Registration must be completed before students commence in the OSHC Program.
