The Roseville College Parents’ Association (RCPA) seeks to facilitate and protect the enduring sense of community enjoyed at the school.
The RCPA is a group that is made up of parent representatives who actively engage with all parents in the Roseville College community. The RCPA operates under the authority and discretion of the Principal and is supported by the Community Relations Manager. As the RCPA is not a separate entity, all funds associated with the operation of the group are College funds and will experience a high level of financial stewardship, as do all financial operations of the College.
The RCPA enables parent engagement with the College community as a whole through the organising of events, activities and programs, and through the holding of regular RCPA meetings (generally once a term). Our strong Class Parent Network also organises social and friend-raising events for their child’s respective classes and year groups.
The purpose of the RCPA is to:
- Enable parents to engage with the College community as a whole, through organising, supporting and taking part in RCPA events, activities and programs
- Promote a sense of community and opportunity for parents to connect and make friends within the College community
- Enable parents to provide assistance to those in need in the College community
- Provide meetings each term as a forum for Principal / parent engagement
- Raise funds, if deemed appropriate, to benefit Roseville College
- Facilitate pro bono services, gifts and volunteers to the College to benefit the students.
All parents and guardians of current students are members of the RCPA, and are encouraged to join the RCPA Committee and/or become a Volunteer at the school, provisional to a valid Working with Children Check, if and as applicable. This is compulsory when involved in activities directly engaged with students at the College.
RCPA Volunteers greatly enhance life at Roseville College by participating in a range of activities. These include: helping girls with reading, assisting and fundraising for continuous improvements around the campus and supporting extra-curricular opportunities (such as rowing or debating), marshalling and helping at school carnivals, preparing frozen meals for families in times of distress, serving in our school Canteen, or meeting regularly with others for prayer.
