Rupanyup Primary School is situated in the heart of the agricultural region of the Wimmera. Many of our families derive their income from the land. The nearest major population centre of Horsham is forty-five kilometres away. Rupanyup has long been a progressive town that takes pride in the maintenance and development of its surroundings.
The school is no exception and the 1920’s red brick building is surrounded by native gardens and well maintained playing areas. The staffroom area is a recent addition to the school, providing staff with a spacious and well equipped meeting area. A separate art room offers excellent facilities and all four classrooms are well resourced. The current enrolment is 41 students. Class sizes are small, and our focus is on individual learning and the development of personal attributes such as respect for others and self-esteem.
Although a rural community, we offer our students a wide variety of experiences through cultural performances, sport and excursions. We are one of the fortunate schools in the state to have a swimming pool within the school grounds, and this facility is well utilised by our students over the warmer months. The use of this pool has now been extended with the addition of solar heating. Rupanyup Primary School is a member of the Dunmunkle Cluster, a group of five schools that have long shared resources, Professional Development, staff and planning.
