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

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

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
Congratulations to Kailey Chick (Year 8) who has been awarded the cover prize for the Spring Poetry Anthology for the South Australian English Teachers Association.
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.
