SunSmart From September-April:

Don’t forget, Great Ryrie is a SunSmart School and as such children are required to wear their school sun smart hats from the beginning of September until the end of April each year.

Children are required to continue wearing their sun smart hats throughout recess and lunch breaks up to and including Wednesday, April 30th, next week!


Well done to JSC for their fantastic PJ Day on Wednesday, which raised money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal!


Every child brought their Individual Learning Plan, which they, their teacher and parents developed together at 3-Way Conferences, home at the end of term, along with their portfolio work samples!

School resumed at 8:55am on Wednesday, April 23!

School office hours are 8:30am – 4:30pm each school day.

 Our Mission Statement: To provide a supportive and engaging environment which enables students to develop the emotional, social, physical and academic skills to adapt and contribute positively to an ever changing world!

At Great Ryrie Primary School we aim to help our students develop lively, inquiring minds, a love of learning and a willingness to apply effort to worthwhile tasks.

Our school ethos is based on our six common agreed values – Collaboration; Honesty & Integrity; Individuality; Learning; Positive Attitude; Respect & Responsibility.  We believe the key to student wellbeing lies in building strong relationships across the school, and our values form the basis of all our relationships.

We have a culturally diverse school community and we celebrate differences. We treat every child as an individual and aim to identify and meet the learning needs of each student.
