Rosebank Public School

Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.

During November, Rosebank students in Years 3 to 6 spread their wings to experience education in the great outdoors, as they ventured off on our annual school camps. Years 5 and 6 students headed North to Queensland, where they participated in an Adventure Camp. Years 3 and 4 students stayed a little closer to home, at Camp Koinonia at Evans Head. Both camps were very special times of togetherness and fun. 

Seniors enjoyed Abseiling, High Ropes, Campfire and Bushcraft activities, Drumming, River Rafting, Archery...and more. The Years 3 and 4 students, not to be outdone in the Adventure stakes, took on their own Vertical Challenge and donned harnesses to go Swinging in the Chapel. When we returned to school, we raced to file copy on time to meet the publication deadline for own Camp Chronicle. Today, we share with you just a one of the fabulous reports filed by our intrepid reporters.


Local Women in Business

Innovation seems to be the buzzword at the moment and the Northern Rivers Rainbow Region is brimming with individuals bringing great new ideas and energy to life. 

Here at the VJ we love to promote local entrepreneurs, new businesses and inspirational women and this month we will be profiling two local women who are starting up their own businesses. 


In this edition we feature Flick Durham’s gorgeous new product - Guidance Cards for Kids and Melinda Turner who is opening her store Shoes on Magellan this month.

Fed Films - December & January

by Pip Morrissey

On Saturday 12 December we’re showing a very clever black comedy, What We Do in the Shadows.  It’s a horror movie send-up that’s been described as fresh, funny and smart, receiving critical acclaim as the best comedy of the year in 2014. Critics and cinemagoers alike loved it.  If you’ve got good sense of humour, you’ll get a lot of enjoyment from this film, while socialising with locals and friends and enjoying a great meal. The catering this month will be provided by the Goonengerry Landcare Group and we’re going to be treated with a middle eastern feast of spiced chicken, lebanese rice, shepherds salad with croutons and sweet potato cakes as well as homemade cakes, tea and coffee.
