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
We look forward to meeting many families at our ‘Inspiring Success’ evening on Tuesday 6 February, 3.15-7.00pm.
Program details are available here:
My name is Amanda Badcock, more commonly known as Miss B, and I am the new Assistant Principal of Primary Years. I previously worked at Aberfoyle Hub Primary School and across the South Valley Precinct partnership as a Growth and Pedagogy Coach, Learning Coordinator and Leader of Learning Improvement across several schools.
I am also a proud mum of two gorgeous children, an 8 year old girl and a nearly 3 year old boy.
I’ve received a warm welcome from staff, students and families this week and am very excited to be here at Reynella East College. I’m actually a Reynella East High School alumna so it’s great to be back!
Amanda replaces Karen Church, who has now moved into a new position at REC, sharing the Assistant Principal – Intervention and Support role with Isabella Zoanetti.Read More
REC wins The Principals Cup and Achievement Cup for the 6th year in a row. A great accomplishment and just reward for the participation and success in Sport in the Southern Vales and Fleurieu Zone for the REC students this year.
Enormous thanks goes to our dedicated PE teachers for their tireless energy in supporting our students to play a large variety of sports for REC.Read More
A photographer visited the Preschool this morning to capture a special moment in the world of environmental education. The Onkaparinga Council Waste and Recycling Team chose our Preschool to launch this awesome new resource “Pollutoys” which teaches kids about plastic pollution using plush toys. Each toy has a pocket in their stomach full of items of plastic waste such as cutlery, bags, cups and bottles also made out of textiles. Each toy also comes with a short story explaining how they got sick and how children can help them.
Lachie and Felicity did an amazing job in front of the camera! The article will be published in the January edition of the Onkaparinga Magazine which will come out with the Messenger.Read More
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
