Rose Park Primary School

Rose Park Primary School was established in 1893 in a picturesque inner suburb only minutes from the Adelaide city centre. The school provides a safe and attractive environment in which to live and study and is close to public transport, recreational parks and a bustling shopping precinct. Rose Park Primary School is a well-respected and very popular high performing school delivering the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IBPYP) from Reception to Year 7 and offering Japanese and music as specialist subjects. Learning through inquiry, and a focus on information and communication technologies that enhance the inquiry processes have resulted in students being highly motivated, co-operative and engaged in their learning.
