Who we are and what we’re about

Ringwood North Primary School is situated in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne in a leafy residential area.

Our school offers educational possibilities. We aim to constantly strive to improve the learning outcomes for students in an atmosphere that is caring and supportive and in which successes are shared and celebrated. Students experience a comprehensive curriculum inclusive of a range of extracurricular activities.

Our school community is proud of our Performing Arts and Creative Arts programs. All children receive instruction in classroom music and have the opportunity to join the school choir, participate in the Instrumental Music program, join the school band or join one of several performance ensembles. Instrumental lessons are held during the school day by a team of highly able musicians. Our Creative Arts program across is second to none. All children access the talents of our staff to work in various media and contribute to projects throughout the school.

Our favourite thing about the iPads

Our school already has a strong emphasis on the application of Apple technologies to support and extend learning, through digital storytelling, podcasting, animations and movie making. We see the iPad as another step forward – an opportunity for us to revisit and challenge our views on curriculum and make learning even more relevant and engaging.
