The Rosary School does not have the “bells and whistles” of many more expensive schools. There is no canteen, classrooms are functional and staff rooms are furnished with desks rather than sofas. The outdoor space, set in quadrangles, is similarly functional but allows children to run around in a relatively cool, shady environment. The garden area behind the Foundation building is a highlight and clearly carefully tended.
However, the school ensures that all the basics for learning in terms of space and resources are available in an environment that we are told is studious and highly focused, providing the best quality of education for families who cannot afford bells and whistles fees.
