The school production is held bi-annually and involves all Holy Rosary students. It is held at the ClockTower in Moonee Ponds and all families have a ticket allocation to attend.

Art Show

The Art Show is held bi-annually and all Holy Rosary students P-6 exhibit art work at this event held in Mercy Hall. Families and guests are invited to attend the Art Show.

Sporting Events

Each year Holy Rosary holds an Athletics Carnival which involves sprints, relays and a variety of rotational activities. Students enjoy healthy competition between House Teams MacKillop, Sion, Mercy and Hennessy.

Year 5 and 6 students participate in interschool sports during the Summer and Winter seasons.

Some students may have the opportunity to participate in sporting carnivals and events at a District or Regional level, should they qualify.

Music Programs

Students can participate in our school choirs or our rock band.

Swimming

Prep-Year 2 students participate in a Water Awareness Program at Kensington Pool. Year 6 students also participate in a program to certify that they can swim 50m. (This is part of Government requirement).

Genius Time

This program allows students the opportunity to participate in a number of self-selected workshops which run over five weeks. Activities may include gardening, cooking, woodwork, technology, music. As students progress throughout the school they participate in passion projects and inquiry units that further develop the skills gained in Genius Time projects.

Science Fair – Science Talent Search (P-6)

All students are invited to participate in a Science Fair. They prepare a project which they share with their peers before displaying it at a Science Fair open to classes and families in Mercy Hall. From here, some projects are selected to participate in the Science Talent Search.  We have high levels of participation in these events and many students have been awarded certificates and bursaries in the Science Talent Search.

Tournament of Minds (Years 4-6)

We have entered teams over many years with great success. Last year, we entered four teams in TOM; Language Literature, Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM), The Arts and Social Sciences. Our STEM team competed in the State Finals.

The Shared Stories Anthology is a collection of stories and art work that is published and housed in both the State Library and the National Library. Eighteen Holy Rosary students had their work published last year.

Maths Olympiad

A team of Year 5 and 6 students are selected to enter the Maths Olympiad each year.

Two Holy Rosary students have had their art work recognised in this competition.
