Primary Years Programme (PYP)
All students at Rose Park are part of our Primary Years Programme. We use inquiry as our pedagogy for engaging students in the deeper understanding and ownership of the learning. Our staff are highly skilled and professionally adept, and consist of course writers, workshop leaders and school visit trained professionals. The school makes a point of ensuring our teachers attend current, relative professional learning and they work collaboratively to deliver a quality inquiry program. Our whole school action plan is centered on authentic inquiry democratising our learning, and we constantly seek evidence for this research.
