Holy Rosary School is an inner-city parish primary school, just 4 kms from Melbourne’s CBD. It was established in 1915, under the care of the Sisters of Mercy. Ongoing extension and refurbishment ensures our facilities meet current educational needs.

Holy Rosary is focused on building a community that reflects our Mercy heritage. The Mercy qualities of welcome, hospitality, inclusion and service, especially to those in need, are the hallmarks of our community. The words of our school song suggest our mission, 'We believe in strength, love and kindness. We will be light to those around us'.


We are a proud and passionate Catholic school that encourages our students to use their gifts and talents to become Christ’s hands and heart for those they meet.

We believe that powerful learning is purposeful and engaging. It seeks to challenge, encourages reflection, and focuses on student passions, interests and needs.

We promote strong family engagement and recognise parents as a child’s primary educator and value the role they play as coeducators.


Students have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities that support learning of the whole child:

- Music, Japanese, Physical Education, Science and Visual Art
- Biannual Art Show, Musical Production
- Tournament of Minds, Science Talent Search, Interschool Sports, Camps Years 3-6
