Our Year 6/7 Executive students attended a leadership day run by Amanda Rishworth at the Cove Civic Centre. Students listened to guest speakers Kyran Dixon, Bronwyn Klei, Leana de Bruin and Scott Fitzgerald. They also had the opportunity to work with another school to purpose a community event.
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

Hello, my name is Lara Lang, and I am excited to be the new Assistant Principal – Innovations in Science and STEM at REC. For the last 12 years I’ve worked in the Catholic education system in Adelaide and Japan. My interests and passions in science extend to being a regular presenter at STEM conferences, and being active in the non-profit ‘The STEMable Project’, which seeks to increase female participation and success in STEM pathways.
I live in an eco-house made from straw bales, where my two children keep me busy as we explore the world around us.
Quick quiz: What’s the most common element in the Universe?
The first few weeks at REC have been exciting; full of inspiring conversations (with students and staff!) and overwhelmingly positive. I’m looking forward to science hosting an inaugural show as part of Fringe@REC later this term.
If anyone in the Reynella East College community has a background or experience in science, please contact me as I’d love to explore connections – whether it be as a guest speaker, “skype an expert”, judging products, providing real-life challenges to be solved, co-working on a project or mentoring students.
P.S. The answer is Hydrogen.
Today was a special day as we officially opened the primary Tunnel and Orchid. Special guests from the Credit Union SA, Nat Cook and Barry Temme, joined Caroline Green, staff and very excited students as the ribbons were cut. Our guests were delighted to meet the chooks, including 2 birds new to the REC family. Our sincere thanks to the Credit Union SA and their School Community Rewards program for their ongoing support of our fundraising efforts that help make such wonderful facilities possible.

Hi, my name is Debbie Taylor and I’m working as Assistant Principal – Innovations in Teaching and Learning Years R-7. My roles include classroom teaching, supporting EALD students and working with staff and students on curriculum. For the last 13 years I’ve worked in Littlehampton Primary School. My passion for critical and creative thinking has also seen me become heavily involved in ‘Tournament of Minds’, a student program I hope to bring to REC.
I live up in the Adelaide Hills where, along with other members of my family, I am heavily involved in netball and softball. My husband and son also enjoy off-road racing. My children are currently in Year 11 and 12, so it is a very busy time in our home.
I’m enjoying my first weeks at REC. It is great to have a change and to meet new challenges. The staff here have been welcoming and supportive and I’m looking forward to meeting families too.
Debbie replaces Margo Leatch, who now holds the position of Assistant Principal – Early Years at REC.Read More
