Sport activities and swimming lessons are a regular part of a child’s balanced educational program and everyone is expected to participate. The school provides an option of choice in sporting activities with no gender distinction. A note from parents or a medical certificate is required if a child is to be exempt from sport.
There are four factions at Rosalie PS; Onslow (green), Derby (red), Shenton (yellow) and Hensman (purple).
Throughout the year, children (Years 1-6) participate in several sporting events for their faction. Events include swimming, athletics and cross country.
