ROSEVILLE COLLEGE


Roseville College is an independent day school for girls in Kindergarten to Year 12, in the Anglican faith tradition. Founded in 1908, the college features a vibrant and flourishing school community of 800 girls, and has a proud history of providing girls with a contemporary, relevant education that empowers and readies them for a meaningful, fulfilling future beyond the school gates.

Vision for girls: The college aims to engage girls in personally enriching learning experiences, and to empower each girl as she defines who she is and how she can make a positive difference to the world. In college life, staff and school community work together with a common vision: to see every girl — every daughter — flourish as she discovers and develops her unique talents and potential; as she applies new ways of learning and thinking; and as she strives to give her personal best in all aspects of life. Roseville College is a non-selective, local day school on Sydney’s North Shore. The school reports consistently strong academic results (culminating in the HSC) and ranks among top educational performers in NSW. Importantly, Roseville Old Girls (graduates) credit the school with a significant role in helping them develop indispensable and commendable qualities such as self-confidence, optimism, a spirit of inquiry, wisdom and personal accountability, a concern for others, and the courage and confidence to ‘have a go’. Alongside a varied and high-calibre academic curriculum, Roseville girls from Kindergarten to Year 12 engage actively in a balanced school life and they make the most of myriad sporting, creative, leadership, personal, service and community opportunities available. Consequently, the girls develop a strong sense of belonging, ownership and connection to the college and to one another. To learn more, see ‘What Sets Us Apart?’ at rosevillecollege.com

Location and facilities: Roseville College is centrally located in the suburb of Roseville on Sydney’s North Shore. Its 1.9-hectare campus features a Junior School Complex, Middle School Complex, Senior Girls’ Study and Recreation Area, multipurpose hall and Chapel, a Performing Arts Centre (a performing arts and educational facility featuring a 350-seat auditorium, drama and recording studios), Creative Arts Centre, a contemporary Library and Information Resource Complex, a heated swimming pool and multipurpose outdoor courts. While the campus itself is among tranquil, heritage-listed residential streets, there is also easy access to major arterial roads and train lines, which enable a straightforward commute from the Upper and Lower North Shore areas, as well as Lane Cove, Ryde, Manly Warringah and the Hills District.

Curricular choices: Roseville offers students a rigorous academic curriculum with a very wide range of elective subject choices in the Senior School. Fostering a ‘Culture of Learning’, students study subjects in the areas of STEM, the Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Creative and Performing Arts. Please contact the Registrar for current subject lists and innovative curricular programs, including the IB PYP program in Junior School and highly acclaimed Cambridge Courses in Middle School years.

Co-curricular: Students are encouraged to extend themselves and explore areas of interest outside school hours, with numerous co-curricular opportunities available. Among these include: Antipodeans Abroad, Tournament of Minds, mock trial, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, Crusaders, clubs for debating and public speaking, robotics, coding, STEM, community service and charity, drama and musical productions, music tuition and performance, bands, student council, sports, photography and creative arts.

Pastoral care, personal development and student welfare: Roseville College has a well-renowned student development and wellbeing program providing active guidance and support to each student (from K–12) through class and pastoral care groups, mentoring, chaplaincy services, outdoor education adventures and camps, established leadership and peer network programs that foster positive connections, careers guidance (including work experience and careers evenings), student wellbeing seminars and events, community service, philanthropic and social justice activities. Roseville seeks to enhance each girl’s time at school, and this includes developing practical life and interpersonal skills alongside the development of their character and knowledge.

From the principal: “At Roseville College, our students see their teachers as both leaders and co-learners as, together, we discover and practise the art of being a lifelong learner. Our teachers make the measurable difference. They are professionals who seek to stay at the cutting edge of educational developments and research, while working diligently to help each girl accomplish her best. Our aim is to offer the best possible learning experiences and achieve the best possible learning outcomes for your daughter in every facet of school life.

“As she learns, and underpinned by the Christian faith, Roseville College aims to guide your daughter as she makes decisions about the woman she will become and how to define herself. Together with you, her family, we hope to empower her on life’s journey so she is equipped and ready to make her own, positive stamp on the world when the time comes. We welcome you to Roseville College and we look forward to meeting your family.

Principal: Ms Deb Magill

TARA ANGLICAN SCHOOL FOR GIRLS


Group of Tara girls Junior Girl Book Junior School Girls Technology Classroom Telescope

Tara Anglican School for Girls is an inspirational learning environment for Early Learning Centre to Year 12 girls. Established in 1897, Tara has a rich tradition of more than 120 years’ experience in education in the Parramatta and Hills region of Sydney. High academic results are being attained and a wide variety of opportunities are offered for girls to develop holistically within a strong Christian framework. Tara has a strong and proud tradition as an Anglican, non-selective school for girls which nurtures its students academically and spiritually and provides great opportunities in the co-curricular arenas of the arts, sports and the service of others. Tara is a school filled with energy and vitality and the students enjoy impressive facilities and excellent teaching by passionate and dedicated staff.

Its purpose is to be a Christian learning community, characterised by excellence, which encourages and empowers girls to achieve and serve in a dynamic world. Tara girls are enveloped in the school’s culture of affirmation, service to others, opportunity and integrity. Excellence will continue to be a hallmark of Tara. Underpinning Tara are strong commitments to an authentic Christian faith which values individuals and recognises their uniqueness and an outstanding educational offering for girls.

Tara is committed to offering girls an outstanding education, based on best practice and designed to enable students to achieve academic performance which ranks at the highest levels for Junior and Senior Schools. Tara’s excellent educational offering will continue to be seen not only in the academic arena but also in the co-curricular. Tara continues to offer cultural and sporting activities as well as community service programs which can be life changing. Tara’s depth and breadth of educational opportunities will continue to promote the attainment of each girl’s potential, specified outcomes and the development of girls’ characters and leadership potential.

The Tara Strategic Plan for 2016-2020 establishes a framework to further build this great school. By the end of 2020, Tara will be a leader in girls’ Christian education: research-informed teaching and learning with an emphasis on the holistic development of each student and where every student is cared for, challenged and equipped to live out the distinctive values of the school.

Teaching and learning: Teaching practices are informed by research in best practice teaching and learning for girls from the early years of school through to graduating Year 12 students.

In the Junior School, learning is organised using the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme framework. Within this organisational structure, Tara embeds the key subject areas of English, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Sciences, PDHPE and Creative Arts. In addition to this, Tara girls also learn an additional language from the age of seven.

Tara is a ‘Candidate School’ for the IB in Senior School. The Middle Years Programme will be implemented in 2016 through to Year 10 by 2019. Tara believes that the IB MYP provides a framework to guide, and embed all that is ‘best’ about modern constructivist teaching and learning in a systematic and holistic manner. Such a framework will provide consistent learning experiences for all students across the whole of the Senior School.

Tara girls continue into the Higher School Certificate for Years 11 and 12. As one of Australia’s leading private schools, Tara Senior School has an outstanding reputation for preparing girls for entry into the country’s top universities and for future success.

The All-Rounder Girl: Many parents and Tara Old Girls identify that one of the school’s greatest strengths is educating the ‘whole’ student throughout her school life.

The school’s aim is to build a future that optimises each girl’s ability to learn and develop as a strong, resilient young woman who leaves Tara well prepared to embrace life’s adventures. Student engagement, mentoring, service learning and house system ensures no girl goes under the radar.

Tara provides girls with a balanced education through extensive academic and co-curricular opportunities. Students are supported and encouraged to explore a wide range of programs as they develop their skills in a supportive and dynamic environment. Tara has a strong tradition to offer opportunities to empower students, including debating and public speaking, performing arts, leadership programs, sport as well as academic and social clubs. All students are encouraged to think globally with opportunities for cultural experiences and exchange programs abroad from Year 5.

The study of Astronomy is an exciting aspect of Tara. Tara is the only school in Australia that offers a full and enriching course into Astronomy thanks to the Global Jet Watch telescope, the largest privately owned telescope in Australia, which has been built on school grounds in collaboration with Oxford University, UK. Using this unique apparatus and research level observatory, students conduct astronomy and physics research, work directly with internationally renowned cosmologists and scientists from Oxford University and host star viewing nights to build their skills.

Learning community: Tara is located on 12 hectares of beautiful grounds and gardens in North Parramatta. The amazing learning spaces are an integral part of framing exciting learning experiences, from dynamic classrooms, boarding facilities, extensive sporting grounds, theatres and pre-tertiary centres. About 40 per cent of the grounds are dedicated to recreational and sporting use. Tara is a leader in the use of technology and continues to explore new mediums to support girls in their development. The school wants the young women of Tara to be prepared for life beyond Tara and to take her place on the world stage.

MLC School


MLC School’s mission is to educate young women to be fearless thinkers, with moral courage and compassion to be agents of change in their own lives and the lives of others.

MLC School is an independent, non-selective Uniting Church school for girls from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 in Sydney’s inner-west region. From Pre-Kindergarten through to their time as Senior School students, MLC School girls dare to be more.

Led by a highly professional staff under the guidance of principal Ms Lisa Moloney, girls are challenged and encouraged to question traditional perceptions and roles of women and are instilled with the skills and confidence to take their place in an everchanging society.

The MLC School girl is empowered with skills and capabilities that enable her to be adaptive, compassionate and courageous. She embraces new challenges and opportunities; and strives for excellence. She is cared for and well supported so that she can confidently focus on her own individual, personal and academic growth. A wide selection of subject choices, as well as an extensive co-curricular program, aims to empower girls to be self-reliant and play an active role in their futures.

Learning in the Junior School

MLC Junior School is a hub of collaborative learning where girls can push the boundaries of their education from the very first days of their school life. The Junior School program evolves as each girl develops, starting with play-based learning in Pre-Kindergarten and then moving on to a tailored approach that focuses on each girl’s ability and challenges her to play an active role in her learning. The Junior School staff monitor every girl’s educational growth and maintain an open communication channel with parents as part of a partnership to support each student.

Senior Centre

The Senior Centre, opened in 2019, takes classroom practice to a new level and is reflective of modern workplaces. The aim is to equip girls with the skills to be successful in a collaborative team environment and to be comfortable in open-plan, flexible spaces designed for impromptu group work sessions.

Co-curricular Program

From the friendly competition in sport, the creative participation of music, dance and drama to the quick thinking of a vigorous debate, MLC School’s rich and extensive co-curricular program encourages girls to try something different, make new friends and find unexpected passions, strengths and talents in a safe, supportive environment.

HSC and IB in the Senior School

MLC School quickly recognised the value in offering girls a choice between the Higher School Certificate (HSC) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme for their final years of study and so became an IB World School in 1999.

Detailed and personalised career advice is provided to every girl and her parents to support the conversations around the choice that will best suit her interests and learning style. Each student takes responsibility for her own path in the final years, and this is a crucial stage in her journey towards becoming an independent, fearless and empowered young woman.

MLC School girls consistently achieve strong results in both the HSC and IB. In most years, around 40 per cent of girls choose to study the IB.

Senior School Immersions

Year 7 to Year 10 are pivotal years at MLC School where girls experience Immersive Learning journeys that broaden each year.

In Year 7, girls spend “A Week in Shakespeare’s World”, during which they collaborate with one another, staff and members of Sport for Jove, a Sydney-based theatre company. The week-long rehearsal process culminates in a performance for parents and families.

In Year 8, girls undertake a two-week excursion to the City of Sydney to explore what makes a Sydney urban dweller and look to answer the question: “Do we shape our environment or does our environment shape us?” This experience instils in girls an understanding that learning can take place in any environment and provides them with an appreciation of the need to be agile and flexible.

Year 9 girls embark on a trip to Broken Hill, where they learn lifelong skills such as budgeting, purchasing food supplies, cooperation, communication and conflict resolution. The Broken Hill trip has been in place at MLC School for more than a decade.

In Year 10, the students are ready to go global, travelling to Chiang Mai, Thailand. Girls labour intensively and assist in building roads, playgrounds and classrooms for remote, impoverished communities. Teamwork and collaboration are engendered as girls teach in a Thai orphanage and gain a strong understanding of the people and culture of Thailand.

Visit the campus, meet the girls and professional teaching staff and experience the benefits of joining the MLC School community.

St Ives boys lead very busy and productive school lives. They participate in a variety of programs including Music, Science, Drama, Debating, Visual Arts, Languages, Chess and of course, Sport. The swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts are in constant use as are the two main ovals for Cricket, Rugby and Football.

Grammar was founded with the one aim in mind – the preparation of talented boys for advanced study, ultimately university.

ST CATHERINE’S SCHOOL


LEARNING AT ST CATHERINE’S

We educate girls like yours who will shape our future world.

Our teachers embrace the latest educational research balancing clear instruction with engagement. They help each girl to learn in the way that is right for her, giving her the academic rigour she needs and the tools she can use to flourish at school. When she leaves, we want her to be well educated, well rounded and well balanced – ready for further study, ready for life.

THE IMPORTANCE OF STEM FOR GIRLS

Design, innovate, create.

St Catherine’s recognises the importance of a strong grounding in science, technology, engineering and mathematics for girls.

LEARNING ENRICHMENT

Not every girl learns in the same way.

At St Catherine’s we believe all our girls have unique potential and we work hard to ensure your daughter finds hers. Our specialist teachers are there to support and enrich your daughter’s learning path.

GLOBAL ENRICHMENT

When your daughter attends St Catherine’s she will have the opportunity to take up immersive language exchanges, service and cultural tours.

Through our global enrichment program, we give students the opportunity to gain an understanding of international issues and to discover diverse cultures. Studying language and culture at school and then boosting this with an exchange or course-specific tour prepares your daughter for a global future.

OUR GIRLS’ ARE TAUGHT TO GIVE BACK

Why is a service education so important?

Service is one of our key values and unpinned by our other key values of integrity, respect, resilience and relationships. By serving others our girls receive a powerful education about the world, the voice they have in it, the power they have to shape it.

OUR SPIRIT SHINES THROUGH

We have seven houses at St Catherine’s, each with its own vibrant colour.

Our houses form a rainbow of friendship and camaraderie. Your daughter’s house at school will become her own smaller community of support and collaboration. It will be her house from junior to senior school and this sense of belonging will buoy her throughout her school years.

TAKE A TOUR

Come and have a look around.

We would love to welcome you and your daughter to our school at one of our Open Mornings to get a feel for the way we approach education.
