Enrolments and Transition


The College is happy to run tours by request, for students entering at any year level. These tours are usually hosted by the Assistant Principal responsible for the year level that the child would be entering if they were to enrol. Our Open Evening will be held on Tuesday 21st of March 2017 from 5.30pm .

The College runs two specialised programs starting in Year 7. These programs are Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) and the Performing Arts Stream.

There are a range of linkscholarship available to students starting Year 7. These require a written application, teacher reference and interview. This process is completed during Term Two.

The College has a range of linkcharges that relate to delivery of the curriculum. There are some high-cost subjects in areas such as Technology, Outdoor Education and VET Studies in senior years. All charge sheets are sent out in late Term Three.

To arrange a new enrolment interview, please call the College’s Front Office on 5986 8595 to make an appointment.

We have sub school system (Junior, Middle and Senior Schools) and Year Level Coordinators, who will monitor your child’s progress through their years at the school. There is a large linkwellbeing team who can support your child through a range of issues.

One of the key ways we support your child’s transition into the College is our Personal Development course, which runs from Years 7 to 9 as part of our linkPastoral Program. Personal Development teaches student a range of skills and information to support their health and wellbeing. We aim to build healthy, resilient students who will thrive in school and adult life.

Year 7 Transition


Rosebud Secondary College works in partnership with regional primary schools to ensure students make a seamless transition into life at secondary school. This begins while the students are in Year 6, with Transition Interviews and Orientation Day in Term Four providing opportunities for them to meet their teachers and classmates, and learn their way around the College grounds.

On the first day of Term One:


Period 1: Students meet in the College Hall and are allocated into their form groups (as at Orientation Day.) Students are then welcomed into Hillview Stadium by rest of school for their first full-school assembly.

Period 2: Students meet with their Pastoral Care teacher to receive their lockers and their timetables, and have time to arrange the rest of their day.

Periods 3-6: Students attend their timetabled lessons.

Week 3 of Term One: Parent Morning Tea: Parents are invited to meet their child’s teachers at a light luncheon in the College Hall. Students also attend.
