Holistic Education at Rosebank

Rosebank PS is in the grip of Sports Mania! As soon as we returned to school from holidays, we all got busy training for the First North Athletics Carnivals. The excellent coaching provided by Jenny from Little Athletics came in handy as our students vied to represent the school. Older athletes braved wet weather to compete in Sprints, Relays, Discus, Shot Put and Ball Games.  The whole school later competed in a second event, with even our youngest students enjoying novelty games, Marching and relays. Ahead...the next round in the Small Schools Knockout Competition for Soccer as well as a whole-school Yoga program. 


While Rosebank loves Sport, we strive to provide an engaging educational program that responds to all students’ individual learning styles, capabilities and needs. Recently, students auditioned for parts in our Whole School Musical, The Lion King. Our school musical is special because every child in the school participates, Whether as a musician in the band, a member of the chorus or a major character, each student will play their part in putting together a stunning performance, led by our wonderful specialist music teacher, Oliver Pescia.  Ahead....happy days for two talented students, Aimee and Ashley, who will soon head off to Creative Arts Camp. 

One of the dreams of our school community, expressed during the development of our school plan, was that all Rosebank students would learn a language other than English. This term, students in Kinder and Years 1 and 2 have begun their French studies. Older students have already had a term’s instruction in French. We are pleased to announce that, should a mystery benefactor send us on an excursion to Paris, none of our senior students will starve as they can all now ask “Est-ce que je peux avoir un croissant s’il-vous-plait?” 

A very special highlight of the new term was attending the meeting of Rosebank Inc. It was so exciting to meet the members of this very important community group and explore ways that we can work together. Next year, Rosebank PS will celebrate its 125th year of providing quality public education for the children of Rosebank. Please consider joining with us to plan celebrations for this very special event. A committee is being convened to begin 

preparations and will have its first meeting on Wednesday September 2nd at 6pm. We’d love to see you there.
