Vision & Mission


Rosebank is a private, Catholic co-educational college that offers families in the Inner West a unique learning environment. The vision of Rosebank College is that it is known as a place of academic excellence, in which students are both supported and challenged. We strive to be a flexible and inclusive learning community, which reaches out to others in prayer, practice, and perspective. Our aim is for Rosebank to maintain its proud traditions and to respond critically and intelligently to our changing world and its demands. We envision Rosebank to be a place where both staff and students want to be – where they are engaged fully in their learning and use it to make a difference in their world.



Rosebank College is a Catholic secondary school, that continues in the tradition of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan.

It is an environment for young women and men that encourages a love of learning. We promote a balance between the spiritual, intellectual, physical and social development of the individual.

Following the example of the Good Samaritan and in the spirit of the Rule of St Benedict, we encourage a love of Christ, stewardship, hospitality, compassion and service to each other and the wider community.

We acknowledge the primary role of our families and welcome opportunities to work in partnership with them.

As a Catholic community in a multicultural environment we are challenged to give strong witness to our role as advocates of justice.

Rosebank College promotes an inclusive, welcoming environment for children and provides transparent, accountable, risk-based approaches to ensure child safeguarding.
