About us

St Alexander Nevsky Russian school is a Saturday community school for Russian speaking children. The school was established in 1971 and till this day remains one of the oldest and largest in NSW with about 190 students and 23 teachers. The school’s mission is to preserve and support  Russian culture and tradition in children through a variety of disciplines such as language, scripture, history, music etc.

 

Over the years many of our students have won international competitions, which have included the opportunities to take part in special cultural and educational programs over in Russia!

 

We’re located in Homebush, a suburb in the inner west of Sydney, accessible by train (Homebush station) and car (just off Parramatta Rd). The school conducts classes on the grounds of Homebush Public School. Lessons are held on Saturdays commencing at 9am, scheduled according to the New South Wales school terms. 

 

The school is run by the Parents Committee chaired by the P&C President (Principal). The committee is responsible for administrative and financial matters, organisation of festivities and other school events.

Students receive homework each week. Every year, an individual project is to be completed by the student, dictations and tests are conducted on a regular basis. Half-yearly exams take place at the end of Term 2, final exams at the end of the school year (Term 4).

The teachers use textbooks that best suit the needs and abilities of our students. Some of the school resources are ordered from Russia, while others are compiled by our teachers.
