Realising Purpose is achieved by preparing each girl with an education that serves her for life, in a culture of excellence, just as we guide each girl’s development of identity and faith in a caring Christian environment as she finds her place and purpose, equipping her for meaningful service.
Learning for purpose is about more than information and the curriculum, and it is highly influenced by each girl’s individual interests, ability, opportunities and ambitions.
While Roseville College is big enough to offer a dynamic and varied learning experience, the College is still at the optimal size to facilitate a more individual approach to the development of girls — the personalisation of her learning — and to cater for the special interests and pace of its students.
Learning for purpose — especially her disposition for learning — begins in Kindergarten and continues until she leaves Year 12. It focusses on ways to promote her growth, increase her challenge and inspire her both inside and beyond a classroom, and this involves engaging her intellectual, cognitive, physical, creative, spiritual, emotional, social, and communicative self.
In Learning for purpose, our aim is to guide and influence each girl’s world.
While not exclusively — as living for purpose and learning for purpose are deeply intertwined — the emphasis is on each girl’s:
- Intellectual and cognitive capabilities, such as her ability to think in a logical and rational manner, as well as engage in innovative thought processes, practise problem solving skills and establish wise principles for living life well post-school
- Creative talents including concepts of aesthetics and play, such as engaging in musical, dramatic, artistic and other creative endeavours; participating in the creative process and appreciating beauty; and enjoying the pleasures and benefits of "play"
- Ability to communicate effectively and appropriately, including her ability to express herself verbally and in written form, to listen actively and engage meaningfully in the art of conversation, and to employ traditional and contemporary communication tools (from essays and emails to speeches and presentations)
- Mastery over herself, such as the skills of task and time management, self discipline — including the ability to comprehend and assimilate guidance, studying and learning according to her personality and temperament, leadership, people skills, developing patience and perseverance, being diligent, being optimistic and setting inspirational, yet achievable goals for her future.
