Reynella Primary School has a rich and long history. In fact research shows that Reynella Primary is the second oldest still operating Primary School in our state. The school first opened on the 3rd May 1858 in Peach Street Old Reynella. The original school house and Headmaster’s house with an underground well between them still stand as a renovated and inhabited home today.
Reynella Primary moved to its second and larger location on Old South Road at Old Reynella in 1902 and the original second school building still remains as a renovated Medical Centre today.
The school continued to grow and moved again to our current site in Carew Fields in 1990. Our school stands on land that was owned by Carew Reynell, son of our well known local family. The land was originally used for grape growing
