Rosehill Secondary College sits on a large, attractive site with views over the Maribyrnong River Valley and is part of the Moonee Valley Network of schools in the South West Region.
The school is a single campus with Years 7 to 12 divided into a Junior School (Years 7-9) and a Senior School (Years 10-12). The school has 1200 students with an even balance of girls and boys. The values of Respect, Initiative and Learning (RIL) underpin the core work of the college.
Rosehill provides excellent facilities for our VCE students with a designated Year 11 study centre, and a purpose built Year 12 study centre. An EAL and international student collaboration space compliments our International Student Program. As a multicultural community we understand the benefits of globalization and exposing local students to other perspectives and experiences. We enjoy recently refurbished science and art rooms and a well-resourced library, which is open from 8.15am each morning. A large oval, basketball and tennis courts, cricket nets and the gymnasium provide ample space for students. Significant passive recreational areas are also available throughout the school grounds.
Rosehill Secondary College is a school with a strong academic focus and a history of consistently high academic results. At Years 7 and 8, in addition to core and elective subjects, there are two periods each week of Literacy and Numeracy Enhancement. The Year 10 level is structured as an introductory year to VCE. Rosehill Secondary College has excellent VCE results and is committed to supporting a broad range of careers and further education pathways by also offering the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) within the Senior School. A Selective Talent and Enrichment Program (STEP), is designed to cater for intellectually and academically capable students and this is further enhanced by our Advanced Mathematics (RAMP) and English Programs (REAP) at Years 7-10. There is a dedicated sporting program, a comprehensive languages program offering Japanese and Italian, supported with international cultural tours and a sister school relationship with a prestigious Shinto Secondary College in Japan. The Performing Arts faculties excel in producing a musical or dance performance every year for the local community, with the Visual Arts department celebrating students’ work with a bi-annual art show, which has gone from strength to strength.
Sound financial management has enabled the College to implement programs to support student learning outcomes with a major focus on Literacy and Numeracy improvements, and a continuous physical maintenance program. It is anticipated that a new STEM Centre will be built within the next two years.
