Chance to be em­pow­ered

Mercury (Hobart) - - BACK TO SCHOOL -

ROSNY Col­lege is an in­spir­ing and em­pow­er­ing learn­ing com­mu­nity.

The col­lege pro­vides a mul­ti­tude of op­por­tu­ni­ties and sup­port for its stu­dents by of­fer­ing a wide range of high­qual­ity learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

The col­lege com­mu­nity is proud of what it has achieved in both aca­demic and vo­ca­tional learn­ing, as well as be­ing well known for its sup­port­ive and in­clu­sive school en­vi­ron­ment.

Staff are look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing re­turn­ing Year 12 stu­dents as well as those start­ing their se­nior sec­ondary path­way this year.

In 2018, the Rosny com­mu­nity cel­e­brated many achieve­ments, in­clud­ing the growth and suc­cess of the STEAM pro­gram in its first year.

An in­spi­ra­tional stu­dent achieve­ment out of STEAM was Mitch Torok, who won mul­ti­ple state awards, took sec­ond place in the Se­nior Sec­ondary cat­e­gory of the Na­tional iAwards, and won Pitch­fest at the same event in Vic­to­ria for his aWear wear­able de­vice.

A stand­out on last year’s Rosny cal­en­dar was the Spring­board stu­dents’ trip to Ja­pan tour­ing their Taiko drum­ming per­for­mances and hav­ing a once-in-a-life­time cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence.

An­other stu­dent achieve­ment came from Rosny duo Dy­lan and Dan, who won the col­lege acous­tic sec­tion of the Tas­ma­nian Rock Chal­lenge. Fel­low stu­dent Joe Stone also took out Best Male Per­former at the event.

Sam Free­man won Best Doc­u­men­tary and the Premier’s Choice Award at the MyS­tate Film Fes­ti­val, and nu­mer­ous stu­dents re­ceived top marks for na­tional maths and sci­ence com­pe­ti­tions.

All these op­por­tu­ni­ties and more will be avail­able to Rosny Col­lege stu­dents this year.

The school also looks for­ward to see­ing stu­dent Emily Gar­ratt and teacher Clare Latham take on their newly ap­pointed roles as Am­bas­sadors of Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion as part of the 150 Year Cel­e­bra­tion of Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion in Tas­ma­nia.

It is not too late to join the Rosny com­mu­nity in 2019 to com­plete your se­nior sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion.

There is an ex­tra en­rol­ment day sched­uled for Jan­uary 31.

Con­tact the friendly of­fice staff for in­for­ma­tion on 6244 9200 when the col­lege re­opens on Jan­uary 24.
