Roseville Public School was established in 1915 and is situated in the leaf upper north shore suburb of Roseville. It is also one of the older state public school with excellent reputation. Its motto of “Facta Non Verba” means deeds not words in English. In 2014 there are 620 enrolled in the school which is actually three less than the number enrolled in 2008. This is a very rare thing in north shore suburbs and in fact uncommon in NSW overall. Many north shore public school I know of had 40 percent more increase in enrolment number during the same time period. I put this down to the enrolment area of Roseville Public School is almost purely consistent of single dwellings and unlike many suburbs alone the north shore line had significant new multi dwellings built during the same time period. Although there are a number of apartments nearing finish on the boundary roads in Roseville so things will likely change as well.
In 2014 students with language background other than English sits at 24 percent. Roseville Public School also performs very well academically and consistent rank in the top of the state public schools.
Its catchment straddles the north shore rail line and covers majority of the Roseville, parts of Chatswood and Lindfield as well. For final confirmation of the school catchment please contact the school directly.
The school situated east of railway alone the Archbold Rd, the part of Roseville past Archbold road is actually very flat at least in terms of Sydney geography anyway. So the school itself is very flat as well much more so than Chatswood Public School in comparison. As with the schools established around same time, it has the older red double brick buildings and newer ones. It also a three floor new one build during the 2008 GFC period. Say what you might about the stimulus, just visiting the schools you will realise that how much the schools were neglected and the capital investments were well received in the communities.
With fairly stable number of students over the years, Roseville Public School is also one of the few I have visited that got no demountables at all, this is indeed a rare thing in North Shore area in my personal experience. School contain two main building, alone with the usual library, school hall and offices etc. As you can see in the following pictures, there are very sizable play grounds and excellent sports facilities. In this instance no demountables taking up valuable playground space is beneficial indeed.
