Junior School Nurturing their early years


Connectedness

Nurturing a love of learning, a joy for life and an appreciation

for a world full of new discoveries.

Finding the right primary school can be a daunting

and difficult decision to make. It’s about the feeling

you get when you walk into the school; the way your

son talks about it when he gets in the car; and it’s

the welcoming and safe vibe you encounter almost

instantly.

As a parent, you want to put your son’s education and

development in qualified, trustworthy and capable

hands, and we are confident that after you visit our

Junior School you’ll know for sure, there’s nowhere

else you’d want your son to begin his education.

as an individual, and equips him with the essentials of

communication, identity, reasoning, social interaction

and a regard for the future.

Our dedicated approach also nurtures the spirituality

of each boy, and encourages a personal relationship

with God through Jesus Christ.

The Junior School at Rostrevor is at the core of the

College, and is the foundation upon which the school

is built. We strive to provide a dynamic, creative and

relevant education – one which focuses on your son

Experience

Tell me and I may forget, show me and I may remember,

but involve me and I will understand. Proverb

Across the entire Rostrevor community, we value

experience – not simply in the expertise of our

dedicated staff, but just as importantly, in the diverse

and inspiring experiences that each of our students

enjoy as they grow and learn in a caring, supportive

environment.

Naturally, our specially designed curriculum covers

the core academic fundamentals of literacy,

numeracy, creativity, reasoning and comprehension.

But these are just the foundations of a wider set of

experiences waiting to be discovered.

Over many years, Rostrevor has built an enviable

reputation for offering teaching which is relevant

and responsive to the demands of our changing

society, while always supporting the individual needs,

personalities and learning styles of our students.

With us, your son will build the foundations for a

lifetime of learning and understanding, and we strive

to make his years with us as inspiring, engaging and

purposeful as possible – stimulating his mind and his

imagination, caring for his wellbeing and preparing

him to become a role model for others.

Our classrooms extend beyond the walls and

whiteboards, as the students of Rostrevor are

encouraged to explore their environment and

the wider community, their personal talents,

their relationships with others and their belief in

themselves.

Room to grow

The vast and spacious playing fields at Rostrevor

offers a great location for our boys to explore

movement and develop gross motor skills, build on

team work and social skills whilst participating in a

range of sports and outdoor activities in a safe and

healthy environment.


Opportunity

Where else can your son embrace the beauty of nature and the wide, open spaces

right on his doorstep while enjoying world-class facilities and inspired teaching?

From formal lessons and sports programs to

vibrant activities and playtime pursuits, a host of

opportunities await your son at Rostrevor

Junior School.

We also encourage your son to nurture and develop

his own interests through the many support activities

on offer.

Against the backdrop of the Morialta Conservation

Park, our learning facilities are second-to-none and

every boy benefits from modern classrooms and

resources as well as the most effective and trusted

teaching methods.

While the classroom and schoolyard will be at the

centre of your son’s scholastic life, we also play an

active role in the community beyond the front gate.

Our annual programme includes social contributions

to the homeless, people in aged care and to those

from disadvantaged backgrounds.

School spirit

Rostrevor College is a school built on the ethos and spirituality of Edmund Rice.

It offers a valuable, ethical perspective that students can carry with them into adulthood.

In 1802, Edmund Rice commenced his first school

for boys in Waterford, Ireland. Joined by men who

became known as the Christian Brothers, Edmund

extended his mission providing education to poor

youth throughout Ireland and beyond.

All schools in the Edmund Rice tradition have a

charter with four key pillars. These are Liberating

Education, Gospel Spirituality, Inclusive Community

and Justice and Solidarity.

At Rostrevor College we prepare boys to receive the

sacraments and make links with our local parish of

St Joseph’s Tranmere. Students are involved in

outreach programs that link with those who are

marginalized in our own community. As a school

community we pray together and, in the words of

Edmund, allow students to be men for others.
