ChaplaincyTo focus on character at Roseville College means forging and upholding Christian values in the lives of our students and staff, and instilling courage and curiosity, to guide conduct, learning and relationships.
Our chaplaincy program gives our girls the opportunity to explore and experience the wonderful message of God’s love for them.
The development of each girl’s identity and faith in a caring Christian environment is an important part of her learning experience at the College; she is finding her place and purpose in life. As she considers notions of purpose, citizenship and compassion, she will fortify her identity as a woman equipped for the meaningful service of others.
We support our students to exercise curiosity, grow in understanding, and test out what it might look like to live like Jesus, with love, forgiveness and compassion. Through this, students learn to nurture their spiritual wellbeing and faith, equipping themselves for a lifelong journey of inquiry in their lives beyond the College.
The invitation to explore and experience the Christian faith is a part of the regular pattern of life at Roseville College. Students engage with questions of faith in weekly Christian Studies lessons and attend weekly Chapel services. Further engagement is offered through voluntary opportunities such as our thriving lunchtime Cru groups, book clubs and prayer groups. We partner with local schools, churches and organisations to support community events such as Cru Fit and Inter-Cru that allow students to connect with wider networks of their peers.
Our hope for our girls is that they are equipped for this lifelong journey, growing daily in their understanding of what it means to be dearly loved by God, and called by him to live with purpose.

Leading in service
To lead in service is to impact others. Our Service Learning program is designed to instill a great sense of responsibility where girls are prepared to lead, inspired to serve and ready to make an impact on the world.
There is opportunity to participate in a range of community service initiatives as well as to join values and faith-based clubs and programs on campus such as Crusaders and Anglicare.
Students in Years 10 and 11 can participate in both domestic and overseas Service and Learning Trips (SaLT), COVID-19 permitting. These trips develop skills in collaboration, teamwork and initiative, while empowering girls through the independence of travel and the fulfilment of contributing to a local community in a sustainable and meaningful way.
