Larrakeyah Primary School Our school our future


Repton International School

In 2018, a sister-school relationship was developed with Excelsior International School in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. In 2018 and 2019, Year 6 students visited the school during their International Study Tour. However, in 2020, a British company called Repton bought Excelsior International School and consequently, the school has changed its name to Repton International School. The school has a new leadership team and Board.

We are delighted to announce that Larrakeyah Primary School will be continuing a sister school relationship with Repton International School and encouraging collaboration between staff and students from both schools.

Repton International School is just across the Singapore causeway in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. With COVID-19 and travel restrictions, our Year 6 students were unable to participate in the International Study Tour to Singapore and visit our sister-school. However, planning has already commenced with the Principal of Repton International School for the 2021 partnership and beyond, with indications that they would like their students to visit us in Darwin, as well as our students visiting them when they attend the annual Year 6 Study Tour in Singapore. Our staff and students are excited about this new connection.

Leeds International School

In 2022, we are excited to announce our new partnership with Leeds International School in Singapore. Leeds International School is well-regarded, maintaining high standards in learning, teaching and discipline at all times. Leeds International School offers the Cambridge International Curriculum, which aims to lay a strong foundation on school values and striving for excellence. They use Inquiry-based learning to give students an opportunity to self-discover the journey of Learning.

Strengthening our partnership will allow both school to:

  • Provide opportunities for students and teachers to develop skills which enhance cultural understandings
  • Develop students into citizens who are globally engaged with the skills to operate effectively across different cultures
  • Provide opportunities for groups of students in both countries to collaborate on learning projects via technology and study tours.

Strengthening our international partnerships:

Larrakeyah, Repton and Leeds schools recognise the importance of 21st Century Skills, STEAM, and the role of the learning environment. The ability to share experiences and insights in the application of inquiry and activity based learning will enhance our programs and help our students develop informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning.

Partnerships will continue to play a pivotal role in deepening student learning through diversity and culture as well as contributing to the development and innovation of school programs, teaching approaches, and academic outcomes.
