Inside our Hall is a full basketball court, kitchen and toilets. The Hall has heating and cooling so it can be safely used across all seasons.
The Hall is used for Specialist PE lessons, assemblies and special events. It also houses our Breakfast Club program.
Our RSS Community Oval is located at the back of the school and is often the pathway to school by many families with four access points to the school grounds. The RSS Community Oval is available to use by RSS families out of school hours. Our Annual Sports Day and Colour Run Explosion is held on the RSS Community Oval each year.
We have 2 playgrounds in our Fisher and Morphett yards. There are also nature play spaces available to use throughout recess and lunch breaks. There are a number of garden beds across the site that are used to grow herbs, vegetables and flowers.
The Preschool has their own playground, Butterfly Garden, Produce Garden and chicken coop. There is also a large sandpit, musical outdoor instruments and boat for children to enjoy.
The Library Hub is a great place to engage with reading! Each class from Preschool to Year 6 have weekly Library Hub visits where they can read, explore a great range of fiction and non-fiction texts and engage with a Library Hub SSO about extra books to enhance our collection.
The Library Hub is also open every lunchtime for reading, playing board chess and board games and for using digital technologies such as Scratch. it is also a space for young people to enjoy each others’ company. Teachers and Library Hub Ambassadors on Fridays also share read their favourite picture book.
Bush Tucker Garden and Meeting Place
In 2020 RSS was successful in an application for a Community Grant to build a Bush Tucker Garden and to develop a Meeting Place for cultural conversation.
The Bush Tucker Garden was designed and developed by RSS young ATSI students, the Aboriginal Community Engagement Officer, Grounds person and local Aboriginal elders. It continues to be a constant source of learning about bush tucker and yearly lessons take place with Aboriginal elders about how to use these plants safely and respectfully.
The Meeting Place was developed as a place to develop cultural understandings through questioning. The firepit in the middle is used to cook damper during Reconciliation Week.
