“I feel really excited to go to St Raphael’s. I’ll go to assembly. That means I get a little song. When the teacher rings the bell the children say ‘1, 2 eyes on you’. They have new shovels in the sandpit and they have a great sandpit. I have already made friends with Jake, Isla and Samuel. My brother Mathew is at St Raphael’s as well. I love St Raphael’s it’s the best thing in the world!”

St Raphael’s School Reception

As a student in Reception at St Raphael’s School, your child will develop fundamental skills in thinking and curiosity, through play based learning.

Priority is given to literacy and numeracy development as these are the foundations upon which further learning is built. Opportunities to develop these skills are provided across all other learning areas including our specialist areas of Japanese, The Arts and P.E.

Please consult the St Raphael’s School Curriculum for our full scope of opportunities.

Enrolling your child at St Raphael’s School allows them to LEARN and BELONG in our supportive community.
