Message from the Principal
We are a unique school situated on the picturesque Fleurieu Coast. We recognise the importance of academic growth and achievement but also in developing well rounded, empathetic citizens that will contribute positively to society.
At Rapid Bay we aim to develop self-directed learners who exhibit a strong growth mindset, empathy, resilience and a willingness to accept challenges.
Children are engaged and motivated when they are doing something in which they possess talent and are passionate about. It is our responsibility to ignite children’s intrinsic motivation which occurs when talents, along with passion create purpose.
We want our children to be ruthlessly, unendingly curious, realise that success and effort go hand in hand and embrace change. Therefore we are endeavouring to connect the curriculum to the real world, giving student’s choice, making learning more hands-on and building on collaboration. We encourage and nurture children’s natural curiosity about the world around them and expand on opportunities by laying the foundation for an innovating, knowledgeable generation.
Embrace life through learning.
