Discovering passions and purpose
Roseville College’s culture of participation encourages students to try new things. Our co-curricular program provides a wide range of opportunities for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12 to participate in extracurricular activities that cater for a diverse range of talents and interests.
Music is at the heart of much that we do at Roseville College. Whatever the stage in her musical journey, each student has many opportunities to learn, perform and experience the joy of music.
Roseville’s music education has three main streams: in the classroom, extended tuition and co-curricular. Classroom programs are part of every student’s curriculum from Kindergarten to Year 8.
Our music tuition program (instrumental, vocal, musicianship and composition) offers individual lessons during the school day and after school for a wide variety of instruments, with most instruments also available for hire from the school.
There are many ensemble opportunities for both Senior and Junior students, including choir, vocal ensembles, orchestra, Senior and Junior concert band, saxophone, woodwind and brass ensembles, as well as a variety of string ensembles.
At Roseville, the many opportunities in the performing arts foster self-expression, creativity and the courage to try new things. The purpose-built facilities in our performing arts precinct, including our 350-seat auditorium, provide a wonderful resource for our students.
For students wishing to extend their scope in drama, there are a variety of opportunities to be involved in the performing arts from drama club to theatre sports and stagecraft. In alternating years, the Senior and Junior School musical production provides students with the opportunity to perform, play in the band, be part of the technical crew or work backstage as part of the production. Recent productions have included The Lion King, Peter Pan and Into the Woods.
Debating and Public Speaking
Communication is a lifelong skill that empowers our girls. Our debating program offers girls the chance to participate in competition debating or to join the debating squad, and our public speaking program teaches confidence and persuasive speaking skills.
Senior girls in Years 7 to 12 participate in the ISDA, SDN and Archdale debating competitions and they are provided with many opportunities to develop their skills in these areas, within the school and in inter-school competitions. Senior girls can also participate in the Mock Trial and Tournament of Minds competitions. In Junior School, girls in Years 5 and 6 participate in ISDA and SDN debating competitions and the Tournament of Minds competition.
Duke of Edinburgh International Award
At Roseville College, we raise girls to be leaders. We are proud to offer the Duke of Edinburgh International Award for our students to be empowered to achieve their personal best, to learn important life skills and to make a positive contribution to the community.
Doing the Award opened opportunities and experiences for me that I never imagined. I have gained so many lifelong friends through the camps and the short-term hard work is rewarded with infinite joy and memories.
