Our School

With more than 90 years of providing quality education to the community, we are proud of our safe and inclusive learning environment in which students from all backgrounds and cultures can develop and thrive.

Reservoir Primary School aims to achieve the best possible outcomes in student learning. Our school provides a learning environment where children progress in their learning and develop their creativity and curiosity. We offer a school setting where our children feel safe, cared for and valued.

All levels of academic ability are catered for as our teachers work at each students’ level of need, enabling each child to reach their full potential.

Our teachers work in collaborative teams to plan and implement teaching programs to provide the best learning outcomes for every child, including the health and wellbeing of our students and their families.

Students can enjoy the specialist subjects of Science, Visual Arts and Physical Education. LOTE (Auslan) is taught and musical programs for strings and keyboards are offered as electives.

Our recently renovated library is a vibrant and engaging learning space that students take pleasure in using.  In classrooms, students have access to laptops and iPads with a 1-to-1 ratio.

We encourage parents and families to become involved in our school through forums such as the School Council.  We also welcome many opportunities throughout the year where parents can join in with their children such as special days, sporting events or other activities.

The core values of Respect, Responsibility, Acceptance and Personal Excellence make our school a safe, happy place where everyone can learn and achieve success.

From Our Principal

As Principal, I warmly welcome you to Reservoir Primary School. My experiences with the school extend over many years, in which time the school has grown considerably in enrolment numbers and facilities.

The main building is double storey brick building that was built in 1924. We have some portable buildings and a wonderful building that houses the Foundation classes with an open “Investigative Learning” space, central to the classrooms. In the coming months work will begin on a beautiful new gymnasium and performing arts centre.

At Reservoir, we nurture students in an environment characterised by high and positive expectations with opportunities for participation, leadership and goal setting. Whilst English and Mathematics are at the core of our school’s teaching and learning program, the enhancement of specialist areas create broad and exciting opportunities: These include Visual Arts, Instrumental Music program, Science, Physical Education and LOTE (Languages Other Than English) Auslan.

We are extremely proud of our reputation for providing a caring and supportive environment where every child is valued and encouraged to reach their full potential.

We see education as a partnership between home and school. By working together, we can give your child the best opportunity to flourish academically, physically, socially and emotionally.

As Principal, my door is always open to parents wishing to discuss their child or anything related to the school. I am confident that all associations you have with Reservoir Primary will be rewarding. I look forward to getting to know your family.

Enrolments

Choosing the best school for your child is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make, and at Reservoir Primary School we ensure your child’s transition to our school is positive and welcoming.

Foundation Transition

During our Foundation Transition program is held in Term 4, pre-school children have the opportunity to meet their teacher and the other pre-school children during informal play sessions. These sessions instil familiarity with classmates, teachers and surroundings, helping to make their first days at primary school less daunting.

Our Better Buddies program assists with the transition of the first year of primary school allowing our older students to look out for their young buddies – encouraging a positive and caring school culture.

Transfer from other schools

Entry at other year levels is welcomed, both from students whose families are new to the area, or if they are looking to change schools.

An information booklet will be given to all new families; it outlines details of our educational programs and school organisation and includes handy hints to help your child make the transition to our school.

Enrolment

To start primary school, your child will need to turn five years old by 30 April in the year that they start school, and have started school in the year they turn six years of age. The enrolment procedure for Reservoir Primary School is simple and we’re here to help. Enrolment forms are also available from the school office.
