Our Community

School Association

The School Association (Inc) assists the Principal in the development, implementation and review of school policies and programs of the State education system in conformity with the Education Act to benefit the school. Elections for the following year’s School Association will be held each December for the parent, community and student vacancies.

The School Association aims:

  • To bring parents, friends and teachers together for the welfare of the students and the school
  • To further the interests of the school educationally and socially
  • To provide a forum for parents to express their ideas and concerns and to be kept up to date with school operations, issues and events;
  • To allocate funds to support school activities, initiatives and student development; and
  • Where appropriate to raise further funds through the application of community grants.

Some recent achievements of the Association are:

  • Full funding of the week-long Grade 7 Swimming and Water Safety Program;
  • Ongoing sponsorship of the End of Year Achievement Afternoon;
  • Financial support of the School Breakfast Club;
  • Assisting with the purchase of school resources including:
    • New goal posts and equipment for the gym;
    • A secure musical instrument storage area under the stairwell outside the Music Room
    • Additional current Maths Methods (Year 10) specialized texts
    • Drill presses in the Materials, Design and Technologies Department
    • Two outdoor sturdy basketball systems installed on the netball courts
    • Two socketed-outdoor aluminium soccer goals for the top oval
    • A further two headstones to complete the Commemoration of the World War I Project established in 2014 providing a place for commemoration and reflection, particularly for ANZAC and Remembrance Days.
  • Focusing on ways to strengthen parent/ teacher communication, including the reintroduction of the SkoolBag app;
  • Providing a voice to discuss and support the introduction of new uniform items; and
  • Supporting the Student Representative Council (SRC).

By supporting the School Association, you will increase the benefits for your child during his or her time at Rose Bay High School and feel more connected with the school community. Unlike in primary schools, the Association is not required to fundraise. The Association welcomes parents to attend meetings at anytime.
