Our School - Facilities & Environment

Ripponlea Primary School, established in 1922, is located in Carrington Grove, East St Kilda. The buildings are mixture of old and new reflecting our long history. 

  • Classrooms are bright, welcoming and well resourced. Each classroom is equipped with an Internet-connected electronic whiteboard.
  • Specialist rooms are provided for Performing Arts, Visual Arts, LOTE/Italian, Library and Learning Support Services.
  • Outside school hours, the LOTE/Italian room is used for our before and after school care program.
  • The recently built multipurpose hall is used for Physical Education, assemblies, dance, drama, incursions and more.
  • We are fortunate to have an onsite Uniform Shop.
  • Our well-equipped canteen (Snack Shack) operates two days a week at recess.
  • Grounds are neat and well maintained, and include a synthetic multi-sport oval, basketball court, mini pitch, two playgrounds (one for Foundation–Year 2 students and one for Year 3-6 students) and Productive Garden.
  • Recent facilities and environment works have included redevelopment of the front entry with installation of a garden seat, bike racks, access ramp and automatic doors; playscaping along the front fence, shade sail over play equipment, classroom carpet and toilet refurbishment.
  • We also have a close relationship with Ripponlea Kindergarten, which is located on the school site.
