Rosamond Special School

Welcome to Rosamond

Welcome to Rosamond School. Our website is intended to provide a snapshot of our school – the environment, programs, our beliefs, our values and of course our fabulous students.

In 2017 we have 128 students aged five to 18, in14 classes. Our students are from Melbourne's vibrant west, from suburbs within Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong and Moonee Valley City.

In July 2013 the Rosamond School community relocated from the Rosamond Road site in West Footscray (which had been home for so many years), to the brand new, purpose-built facility we planned, designed and built in Braybrook.

I can say with a sense of pride and achievement, that at long last our students have a school which is worthy of them!

Put simply, we are delighted with our school. Classrooms are light, airy and cleverly designed. They back onto Ballarat Road and look out over beautifully landscaped gardens and playgrounds.

Our specialist rooms are built around and look out onto a central courtyard. We call it the Town Square. Already this part of the school has become a gathering place where members of our community meet to chat, enjoy a cuppa, soak up the sunshine and recharge their batteries. Our Library, Art Room, Gym, Music Room, and clinicians' offices all share the same gorgeous outlook.

One of the things which excites our students most about our new school is the space! We have loads of it. Space to run, to play, to bounce a basketball, to kick a footy, to ride a bike and above all, to learn.

We have a vibrant kitchen garden, where the students learn about growing vegetables, fruit and herbs and our own cafe, where the students learn to cook healthy food .

It is in fact our focus on teaching and learning and our commitment to the provision of exemplary individual educational programs that has built the reputation of which we are so proud.

There is so much to share about this wonderful school. My suggestion is that you meander through our website and if you need additional information, give us a ring on 9311 1511 to arrange a visit. We look forward to seeing you!

 - Kate Christensen, Principal.
