Tenth principal inducted


Roseville College’s 10th principal, Ms Deb Magill, is inducted by Bishop of North Sydney, Rt. Reverend Chris Edwards, at her formal Commissioning Service, a long-standing tradition at the 109-year-old school.

Roseville College has inducted Ms Deb Magill as its 10th principal at a formal Commissioning Service at the school in March.

Having just celebrated its 109th birthday in March, the college again celebrated another historical milestone: the formal commissioning of its 10th principal, Ms Deb Magill. The service, presided by the Bishop of North Sydney, Rt. Reverend Chris Edwards, was attended by the Anglican School Corporation Board, the Roseville College Council and more than 1000 members of the college community.

The memorable service commenced with an Acknowledgement of Country by Naomi Irving, college vice-captain 2017, and a welcome from Mr David Minty, chair of Roseville College Council. It also featured hymns and prayers of personal meaning to the college and Ms Magill, as well as a breath-taking performance of Festival Sanctus by the College Mass Choir and a foot-tapping recessional by the College Stage Band.

Bishop Edwards used his address to encourage his listeners, particularly the more than 800 attentive students, to don a “new school uniform” of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience as inspired by Colossians 3:12.

“This service is one of many long-standing traditions at Roseville College. It represents more than an appointment ceremony; it is a commissioning for my work as principal to be under the authority and for the glory of God,” explains Ms Magill, who says the Anglican school for girls is positioned strongly to meet both the current and future needs of its students.

“I am humbled and honoured to accept the responsibility and leadership at Roseville College, and to build upon its enduring and remarkable 109-year legacy,” she says.
