It was wonderful
to welcome so many new families to our Open Day last Sunday. Our Prefects and Vice Captains, together
with some of our teachers, did a fantastic job showcasing our wonderful grounds, facilities and programs.
We can sometimes take for granted what we have at Rostrevor and it is when we hear people speak so highly
about what we have to offer that we realise how fortunate we are.
Families had the opportunity
to see the College in action visiting classrooms, observing Physical Education classes, watching presentations
and music performances and much, much more. After the tour, families returned to the Valley to speak with
staff and enjoy afternoon tea while being entertained by members of our very talented Music Department.
Thanks to our Parents' & Friends' Association for organising afternoon tea and to the many others
who played a role in planning and coordinating the event.

get on the pitch before their season officially commences.
Throughout the day 52 teams played
across 12 pitches. An eager group of Year 11 and 12 students assisted with the event by refereeing matches,
setting up pitches, cooking the barbecue and guiding the 500+ spectators with directions and general enquiries.
We would like to extend our gratitude to our local clubs for their participation and thank the Rostrevor
Old Collegians Soccer Club, the College Pedal Prix Group, members of the Parents' & Friends' Association
for their assistance and Mondo Coffee for catering. Thanks also goes to the other members of our community
who generously supported this wonderful community event, and special mention to the Event Manager, Mr

that you will make some time to discuss your son's progress regarding both his strengths and weaknesses.
While it is important to acknowledge and celebrate your son's strengths, it is just as important, if not
more, to not only identify the weaknesses but together to articulate specific areas for improvement.
