Extra curricular activities

At Roseville we have many programs that are offered to students to extend their learning and encourage participation.

Check out the extra-curricular activities that are offered at our school.

Richmond Hall

In 2005 Roseville Public School successfully gained joint funding with NSW Department of Education to extend our current school hall. The refurbishment included a bigger stage, increased floor space and outdoor shelter area. Larger storerooms for the band and sports department have also been included.  In honour of our past principal Carol Richmond, the improved and enlarged hall has now been named 'The Richmond Hall'.

Sports Program

K-2 Sport

All children in K-2 are involved in a skills development program to cater for muscular co-ordination, flexibility and movement. These skills are a basis of skills required for major sports.

Years 3-6 Sport 

A comprehensive sports program is run for Years 3-6 students. Students are taught skills associated with major sports through the adaptation of skills and rules to suit the development level of primary students.

Sports Carnivals

All students in Years 3-6 are encouraged to compete in three major sports events at the school each year. Each of these carnivals are followed by the District, Regional and State Carnivals. In all cases the children who have the best times in races at a particular carnival are selected to compete at the next level.

School Houses

Students are allocated into the following four 'Houses'. These houses compete against each other at Sports Carnivals.

  • Archbold - Red
  • Babbage - Yellow
  • Fidden - Blue
  • Matthew - Green

Enviro Kids

Vegetable garden outside school library

Each year students from across the school can elect to be involved in the Enviro Kids program which is currently co-ordinated by Miss Bottomley.

Students come up with different ideas regarding recycling and waste management.  They are also responsible for maintaining our numerous vegie gardens that are located in the central area of the school.

Over a long period of time the Enviro Kids have had a huge amount of input into the Roseville Public school Environmental Management Plan.
