Context

Within this setting, Rosebud Secondary College is a large secondary college with an enrolment of approximately 920 students across Years 7 to 12. 

The College has maintained a proud tradition over an extended period of time for providing outstanding educational and co-curricular opportunities for its students which has ensured strong social cohesion, high levels of academic progress and success for the broad range of students enrolled in the College.
