CultureRynfield Primary's Culture
At RPS we create an expressive platform for our learners to be able to experience the wonderfully diverse world that makes up the Arts. We strive to not only offer multiple aspects of the program but also to achieve mass participation. It is important that we give learners the opportunity to develop in the following ways: Expression, Confidence, Creativity, Focus, Risk-taking and Open mindedness.
These are all vital life skills that the arts teach us.
Music form a big part of most peoples lives. We create the opportunity for our learners to not only listen but to be a part of a vocal experience that teaches them discipline and team work. Competing in the London College of Music Exam our Choir members are among the best on the East Rand.
Movement and expression go hand in hand. At RPS we offer dance classes for our juniors. At this age they are fearless and take on anything. The Dancercise not only helps them develop rhythm and movement but it’s also a fun way to exercise.
The fine skill of the creative word is a lost art in the new world. Our poetry club strives to change this statement by letting our senior learners create, discuss and debate thought provoking subjects. The poetry Club serves as a breeding ground for creative ideas and emotional expressions to be cultivated.
The Marimba Academy is at the heart of RPS. They are the rock stars of the school. The select few that are privileged enough to be selected in the academy work tirelessly to create amazing musical masterpieces that are performed at our events. The academy also participates in the London College of Music exam and has obtained a distinction for the last 6 years.
RPS has always been an Eisteddfod powerhouse with our learners competing in the Ekurhuleni Region. RPS boasts a yearly representation at the top awards evening with most of the learners achieving top honours. With the dedication of our learners and their amazing, teachers Rynfield will continue to dominate on this front.
An open canvas and innovative thought drive our art students to create masterpieces. Being able to create something out nothing is a skill that very few poses. We strive to instil the groundwork for our learners to be able to think in the abstract.
Spring Arts festival:
Our yearly Arts festival is a platform for us to showcase the best and brightest that Rynfield has to offer in the cultural sphere.
Every 3 Years we undertake a whole school production where we encourage each and every learner to participate in a music melody showcase. All music and dancing is performed by our talented learners and the choreography designed by our amazing teachers.
