Rosebank College Celebrates 150 Years

12 April 2018 | Community

City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas unveiled a memorial plaque marking Rosebank College’s 150th year.

“Today we celebrate a great milestone in the history of education in the City of Canada Bay, a local school which has reached its 150 year mark,” Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said at the unveiling.

“It is fantastic to be joined by current and former students to reflect on how the College has developed and shaped our area and to celebrate Rosebank College’s wonderful history of individual and community achievement.”

“Rosebank College is proud to be a cornerstone of this community,” said school principal Mr Tom Galea. “This ceremony commemorates the commencement of a rich past during which thousands of young women and later young men were educated. It also points to a promising future of community involvement. We’d like to thank the City of Canada Bay for honouring the College with this plaque.”

Five Dock’s Rosebank College was originally housed in Albina Villa in an area which now is home to the residential community of Concord.

City of Canada Bay officers located the approximate site of 1843 Albina Villa and the plaque will be installed on the footpath adjacent to the corner of Daly Avenue and Alexandra Street in Concord.

“We are marking the site of the first step in this long and illustrious journey to provide passers-by with some important local history to reflect upon,” Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.
