A Catholic School for Girls
Holy Rosary is a Catholic school and the Catholic goal of living life in harmony with God's will is the motive behind all we do. All girls attend Holy Mass and are expected to behave with respect towards all faiths. Non-Catholic students are not forced to recite prayers which are specifically said by Catholics. Any girl may hold office, irrespective of her religion (except for the position of Head of Religion).
Catholic girls are prepared for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation. All girls, whether Catholic or not, attend Holy Mass both in the School Chapel and in the Parish Church. They are instructed in Bible Study, Catholic doctrine and the significance of Feast days. The feasts of Saints are also incorporated into the curriculum.
Girls are educated within a Christian Ethos which ensures that our girls develop values which are accepted by all people of faith whatever their denomination. In high school the girls follow the Cord and Christian Journey syllabus.
