Holy Rosary School
Holy Rosary School Derby is a Catholic Primary School catering for approximately 120 students from Three-Year-Old Kindergarten to Year Six.
The school was established in 1954 by the St John of God Sisters who remained until 1988 when the De La Salle Brothers took over the leadership of the school. The first lay Principal was appointed in 1994 and lay personnel, who enjoy a close relationship with the parish, currently staff the school.
Holy Rosary School provides an inclusive curriculum that caters for all students in a safe and welcoming environment and where all are encouraged to take ownership of their learning and behaviour through living the Gospel values.
The school is committed to improving and raising literacy and numeracy standards for all students. Classroom teachers deliver quality differentiated learning experiences to students. The Sound Way to Spelling, Writing & Reading English provides an explicit phonetic approach to literacy intervention and support. The school also offers Reading Recovery for students at risk. Sign Post Mathematics is undertaken throughout the school from Year One to Year Six.
The school currently has specialist teachers providing Music and Visual Arts, Health and Physical Education, Digital Technologies and Library, and a Mathematics extension program for junior and senior students.
Aboriginal Teacher Assistants are a valued resource who provide an important link between the school and the community.
Commencement date for this position is for Term Four 2019, or, in negotiation with the Executive Director, for Term One 2020.
