Rosebank College Give Thanks for 150 Years of Education

Sydney’s CBD was awash in navy and gold as 1,300 students and staff from Rosebank College will descend into St Mary’s Cathedral on 16 June to celebrate Benedict Day (Founders Day).

This year is of particular significance as 2017 marks 150 years of educating young women, and more recently, young men. As one of Australia’s oldest continuing Catholic schools, the College is energised as it draws on ancient wisdom for a modern world.

Following Mass, the group gathered on the Cathedral forecourt for what was the largest school group photo taken in that location.A walk to the Domain saw the group enjoy a picnic lunch before they boarded ferries to be transported back to school travelling up the Parramatta River to Five Dock as the early settlers had done 150 years ago

Looking for Memorabilia

Our 150th anniversary is here! Such an auspicious milestone could not have been reached without the thousands of young women and men, teachers and parents whose stories have stitched the fabric of Rosebank’s history and unfolded its future.

“We are seeking to reconnect with as many people as possible who have a story, memory or artefact to share and to help us complete the intricate and colourful tapestry that is Rosebank College,” said College Archivist Mr Robert Beazley.

This includes teachers and staff too!

Mr Beazley explains, “Everyone with a connection to Rosebank is very important. Please do not count yourself as insignificant.”
You can assist by getting in touch if:

  • You are an ex-student, former teacher or past parent of the College
  • You have any old uniforms (particularly from the 1930s – 1950s) that the College can use to either photograph or recreate
  • You are the relative of a deceased mother/aunty/cousin/grandmother etc. who attended Rosebank and can recall any conversation you had about Rosebank
  • You have any photos (particularly from the 19th century), exercise books, diaries, medals, trophies, yearbooks or other memorabilia from your time at the College

Mr Beazley is extremely keen to hear from anyone who can contribute. Contact details are: or 9713 3155.
