Principal's Message

Welcome to Rosyth School – The School of Tomorrow, Today.

Rosyth School’s vision espouses a vibrant community of active and lifelong learners (both students and staff) who are equipped with a strong foundation of core skills, attitudes and values to ride on the opportunities and possibilities in the 21st century globalised world. Pursuing this vision is an innovative mind-set that the school and staff embrace where we continuously seek new ways to improve our teaching and learning programmes in the Rosyth experiences to develop our students holistically. These are underpinned by the unifying school philosophy of Every child matter, Every child can, grounded by Rosyth’s ICARE values of Integrity, Care and Share, Adventurous Spirit, Respect and Responsibility, and Excellence in all we do.  
            
In the 21st century, globalisation and advancement in technology will affect nearly every aspect of our lives. The way we work, learn and live is getting more dynamic and involves rapid changes. In Rosyth, information communication technology (ICT) is a key engine to innovate our teaching and learning to better engage and prepare our students for the future. Our students can look forward to expressing their creativity in the Manga digital art programme and engaging in self-directed and collaborative learning through ICT enhanced flipped lessons. Importantly, we want our students to grow up as responsible and ethical users in the digital age through our Rosyth’s active cyberwellness ambassador programme where our students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to navigate in the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.

In Rosyth, learning does not exist in isolation. Instead, Rosythians learn in an authentic context where application of knowledge and skills across subject domains and in real life situations are strongly encouraged. For example, Rosythians use their Science knowledge and process skills to conserve and enhance the school and community environment through the worm-composting Science and innovative green programmes. The school’s Applied Learning Programme in Lego Technology integrates both Science and Mathematics learning. In addition, the Amazing Science programme involves inter-department collaboration that Rosythians learn interdisciplinary skills in English, Science and Values-in-Action. Being the Center of Excellence for Aesthetics, Rosyth School also develops in Rosythians a strong sense of appreciation for the performing arts through their years in the school.

Rosyth has a rich history of 60 years and has held to its commitment and dedication to add value to the cohorts of Rosythians in their learning, personal growth and well-being.  In 2016, we celebrated the school 60th Anniversary (RS60) with various key events throughout the year and saw many Rosythians, parents, school staff and other stakeholders across the decades come together to celebrate with the theme Appreciate, Affirm, Aspire. We are very appreciative of the generous expertise and resources that our key stakeholders, including our Parents Support Group (PSG), School Advisory Committee (SAC), Rosyth School Alumni Association (RSAA) and community partners, have enriched our students’ learning experiences and growth. In particular, our PSG’s dynamism and active involvement in school programmes is a signature in Rosyth School. The many school-child-parent programmes by the PSG have strengthened the synergy and positive outcomes for our students.

Moving forward in 2017, we will continue to aspire as Rosyth School achieves greater height of growth and performance in the years ahead!
