Which level is your child starting school?

We have made an online tour specific to each year level where you can watch dozens of videos that showcase our amazing school 


The beginning year of a child’s schooling journey is one of the most important years of their life. At St Richard’s we provide a stimulating and engaging learning environment designed to develop the foundation for a love of learning.

Year 1/2

The junior school is a wonderful place for young students to consolidate and extend their learning in a fun and collaborative way. We have a great balance of small group work, partner work and one-to-one learning environments. Learning is hands-on, creative and experimental.

Year 3/4

The middle school at St Richard’s is a dynamic and stimulating working environment. Our focus turns to creating independent and motivated learners. We really start to focus on student wellbeing and their sense of community.

Year 5/6

Our senior school is a place of advancement and accleration. It’s hands on, dynamic and loads of fun. Students explore science, technology & engineering through robotics and programming software. We have an emphasis on developing a welcoming and inclusive culture.


A community resource by St Richard’s Primary School

At St Richard’s we take education seriously.
So seriously in fact that we want to extend education beyond the classroom and have it filter into the community.

One of the foundations of strong communities with healthy people (both mind and body) is access to education.

UpSchool by St Richard’s is an online resource we invite you to explore,  immerse and be inspired by.

This free and growing resource centre is our way of sharing positive and inspiring messages that we feel will have a direct and positive impact on our community.

Something in here for all ages

It Took The Whole Universe

The fact that you and I exist at all is extraordinary, given we are just bundles of energy packaged together, conscious, creative and alive.

In Sync

Sharing music, making music and dancing with music makes us closer in physical proximity, but it also means our brains are more intimate too.

Prana Yum

Used for millennia as a gateway to self-mastery and a tool for self-healing, self-awareness and self-realisation, the breath sits at the centre of what determines real, and unreal.

The Om Project – Kids Activity

The Om project is where you can explore the ancient mystery of the worlds most recognisable and practised sounds -Om.

The Intelligent Breath – 2: 1 Breathing Activity

Get smarter and live longer using your breath

Deep Breathing VLOG

Only a few minutes a day of mindfulness and meditation has been proven to change your chemistry, balance your emotions and help you to think more clearly.

You Are What You Think

We used to think our brain was unchangeable by the time we reached adulthood, but in fact, we now know the brain is plastic, meaning it is constantly changing, updating and upgrading itself.

In The Now

People with the ability to concentrate for long periods of time are more intelligent, less stressed, think more creatively, solve complex problems easily, and feel more connected to their friends and family. 

Mandala For Kids

Wu Wei, Your Way

Wu Wei isn’t an invitation to do nothing, rather it means action without effort.
