Winter Co-Curricular Assembly 

Today, we celebrated the dedication and talent of our students across many activities that are offered through the College's Co-curricular Program. From Music and Sport to Chess and Debating, what really shone through today was the emphasis on the team rather than the individual. I would like to congratulate every boy who took part in the rich Co-Curricular offering at Rostrevor and thank the coaches, managers and parents who make these rewarding and enrichening activities possible.

2021 High Achievers Celebration 

On Monday, we will welcome back many of our 2021 high achievers, including Dux Jordan Zorzi, Proxime Accessit Jack Basso, A+ and Merit students and those who achieved ATARs above 90. Unfortunately, the traditional Dux Assembly at the start of the year was impacted by COVID constraints at the time, so we are pleased to have the opportunity to share these achievements with graduates and their families. The complexities of COVID have pushed many events into the latter part of the year and I would like to acknowledge and commend the efforts of College staff who have made many of these celebrations possible despite having an enormous amount on their plate.

Year 11 Formal

It was great to see our Year 11 students pulling out their finery to enjoy their Formal at Glen Ewin Estate. On a cold and wintery night, they certainly warmed up by doing some amazing moves on the dancefloor! Thanks to the staff who planned and supported the event and to all the guests. It was a wonderful evening, and I am sure it will be remembered and cherished by all who attended. Professional images by Event Photo will be available for purchase next week with a link supplied to students.

Prefect Camp

It was great to head along to the 2023 Prefect Camp on Sunday as our future student leaders spent several days at the Monastery in Urrbrae as part of their induction to the Prefecture. See the list of College Prefects and Vice Captains and their responsibilities HERE

Manchester City Football School

On Tuesday, families with sons enrolled in Year 7 for 2023 had the opportunity to hear directly from senior personnel from Manchester City including Tony Byrne - UK Operations Manager - Football Education (Manchester City Football Club) and Jonathan Smith - Head of Commercial & Football Education (Manchester City Football Club) about how the program will integrate with the Year 7 curriculum at Rostrevor next year. 

Year 5 Winners of the Interzone Cup

Congratulations to the Year 5 (Under 11) team which won the Interzone Cup in a thrilling match on the "big stage" of the new ServiceFM stadium at Gepps Cross on Wednesday night. As the best team in the Eastern Zone Soccer Competition, the boys were selected by the FFSA to play the best team in the Western Zone - Grange Primary School. Rostrevor came from behind to win the match 3-2 in the final minute of the game. The goal scorers were Lucas Holling (2) and Hugh Benzan. Thanks go to Adrian Masullo for coaching the team this year.
