Students and staff from Reynella East College attended the White Ribbon Breakfast at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Year 12 student and College captain, Hannah Gapps, displayed incredible leadership as part of the state-wide student forum discussing how we can help ‘Break the Silence’ associated with domestic violence, and help promote Respectful Relationships. Hannah and the other students that attended the breakfast were fantastic ambassadors and proudly represented the College.
At school today students have participated in activities to raise awareness about building respectful relationships and stopping violence against women including ‘wear it white’ and a QR code trail.
As a White Ribbon school we take our commitment to visibly working to build a future free from violence and abuse seriously, and we recognise the important role education plays in the prevention work toward this.
We’re very excited to be presenting another Fringe event at REC on March 23, at 7pm. Tickets are available at FringeTix, from our Finance Office or at the gate on the night.
We hope you can come along and join in the magic!Read More
Our Year 8 students took a step back to Medieval Times today. As an opportunity to bring history to life and to further support transition; the year 8’s were involved in an authentic Byzantine medieval re-enactment of life in the 11th century, and middle ages themed team-building games and activities. A feast of yiros was also enjoyed by many. This inaugural event was an enormous success, with the students and staff well into the spirit of the occasion. Many thanks to the New Varangian Guard for creating an awesome Medieval Village on our oval, and spending the day immersing our students in 11th century history.
Peter Pan – what a spectacular! Our community and families were super impressed by the polish and professionalism displayed by the 350+ cast and crew, over 2 sold-out performances at Hopgood Theatre. It was such a joy to watch students from Reception to Year 12 having a truly wonderful time on stage, with so much talent amongst them. A very special thank you to the many staff for supporting this production at every level, and creating this opportunity for our students to really shine.Read More
The perfect Remembrance Day Service was held this morning at our Primary assembly. Each of the units shared their learning around the topic in the lead up to today, including poetry and song. All 550+ students conducted themselves with utmost respect during the service, for which they are to be congratulated. Thank you also to the parents/grandparents/carers who attended.
The secondary students observed a minutes silence in their classrooms at 11.15 am, with a service led by ‘Nicole’ (our keynote speaker for our Emergency Management PA System).
Lest we forget.

Timing was perfect for the Japanese students from Ushiku JHS to join us in the fun. Congratulations to the Primary team lead by Alice Sensei for the huge effort involved in producing such an amazing event.

During week 10, term 3, years R-7 students focussed their learning on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), with a final presentation of their work at an ‘Expo’ on Thursday afternoon.
It was fantastic to see such imagination and creativity across all year levels and the students’ enthusiasm to present their ideas was awesome. We were blown away by the variety of problems and solutions the students came up with. There was a real buzz about the place during the Expo as students shared their learning with peers, other levels of school, parents and grandparents. A huge thanks to the Primary staff who fully embraced this learning opportunity for their students.
