Our Programs

Rupanyup Primary School provides a range of programs that are designed to enhance our students’ learning journey from every angle. 


Students follow a wellbeing program called ‘The Resilience Project’ (TRP), an emotionally engaging program that provides evidence-based, practical wellbeing strategies that support students in building their resilience.

The program is centred around three core principles, Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness (G.E.M.). It also has a strong focus on emotional literacy, kindness, purpose, connection, and physical health. Through the program students learn positive mental health strategies that they can apply in their everyday life.

Students follow a Wellbeing Program called ‘The Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships Program’. This Program teaches students, social, emotional, and positive relationship skills. This enables students to become successful and purposeful members of the community to which they belong.

All students are expected to treat others as they would like to be treated themselves and through this program students come to realise that they are an important part of Rupanyup Primary School and that their opinion counts. 

Buddy Program

At Rupanyup Primary School we are proud of the Buddy Program we provide to all Prep students. A senior leader in the school is paired with each Prep student to ease the transition into primary school. The senior student is on hand to support the Prep student on orientation days and during the first weeks of school. There are also further Buddy catch-ups and activities that take place throughout the remainder of the school year.

Breakfast Club

At Rupanyup Primary School we pride ourselves on creating students who are active members within the community. With the help of small businesses and local organisations around the area, students are provided a warm breakfast once a fortnight. The healthy and hearty breakfast not only fuels the students for a day of learning, it creates an environment where community members get to know the students and vice versa. Often people who prepare the breakfast speak to the students and give a short history of their life in Rupanyup, which the students thoroughly enjoy.

Camps and Excursions

Wherever possible, each child is encouraged to participate in the full range of extracurricular activities to build on friendships and connections within the school community. In addition to this, years Prep/1/2 are taken on an annual day excursion as well as participating in a stay late at the end of the school year. Children in years 3-6 are invited on a camp with exciting outdoor activities.

Our Garden 

The school has a small veggie patch and 3 chooks who live under the peppercorn tree. On different occasions throughout the year students will have the opportunity to plant seasonal vegetables and collect the eggs. 

"Our family joined the Rupanyup community in 2017 when one of our girls started in year 1. We have been in all sectors from public in the suburbs, private schools  and rural public schools. I can confidently say that Rupanyup Primary School has offered a more student centred learning environment than any other. The smaller class sizes allow more one on one with the teachers and there’s no segregation of students at lunch time. All the kids play with each other no matter their year level or ability. This has been amazing for our family as one of children is neurodivergent. The school’s great communication with us has been fundamental for our family to ensure that my child felt included and safe. I would recommend Rupanyup Primary School to any family considering our school to anyone starting or continuing their child’s learning journey."
