Vision:

Our Lady of The Rosary Parish School serves the Parishes of Kyneton and Trentham.

Faithful to the living tradition of the Catholic Church and in partnership with the parishes, we give witness to the life of Jesus, through the patronage of Our Lady.

Committed to the protection of all children and young people. Their inherent dignity is respected and nurtured within our safe school environment; as is their fundamental right. This is particularly so for the most vulnerable children, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and children with a disability.

Recognising and promoting acceptance of differing abilities and needs within the community, we nurture and develop the potential of each individual.

Acknowledging that learning is an interactive process, members of this welcoming community participate in the development of life-long learners.

Through the provision of an inclusive environment, and inspired by the example of Jesus Christ, we are empowered to create a socially just world making peace a reality for all.
