At Rosyth School, we collaborate closely with our partners for the holistic
development of our students. Our partners play an important and active role in
supporting and value adding to our school programmes. The school leaders ensure
that the partnership structures and processes are in place and are aligned to
the school vision, mission and values. The partnerships with different
organisations have impacted the growth of our students in the cognitive,
physical, aesthetics, social and moral domains. We constantly seek ways in
establishing new partnerships and strengthening existing partnerships with our
stakeholders so that the partnership is mutually beneficial and sustainable.
In working with our various partners, we have created an open and nurturing
environment which has helped us maintain and develop good partnerships not only
with our key partners, our parents, represented by the Parent Teacher
Association (PTA), School Advisory Committee (SAC) and Rosyth School Alumni
Association (RSAA), but also the various organizations who contributed to the
holistic development of our students. Over the years, the school has established
a partnership network with different sectors of the society. Apart from our key
partners, other partners that we have collaborated with include MOE HQ,
educational institutions, statutory board and community partners.
These partnerships have impacted the growth in both our students and staff in
all domains. The school adopts a whole school approach towards partnership. All
staff work closely with one of our key partners, the parents. The different
departments also work with other partners on programmes and activities that have
impacted the four strategic thrusts.
The school works continuously on improving on its network of partners and
each partnership for mutual benefit. With the right approach of a “win-win”
partnership, the school is able to sustain and gradually expand the list of
partners. The school continues to work on a planned long term relationship with
our key partners. For other partners, the long term collaboration will depend on
how the individual programme evolves, the review on the impact on growth of our
students, partner’s benefits and whether partnership is still aligned with
department goals and MOE initiatives.
At Rosyth, we recognise our partners for their support and contributions. We
have two types of awards to recognise them, the Key Partner Award and the
Partners Award. The Key Partner Award is to recognize the contributions of our
key partners and the Partners Award is to recognize our parents who are actively
involved in our school programme. The awards are presented during our annual
Prize Giving Day. In 2009, we presented the Key Partner Award to PTA and SAC,
and 45 Partners Award to our parents.
Rosyth is indeed fortunate to establish partnerships with many organisations
and we will continue to harness the support from different partners, streamline
the partnership process and align the partnership efforts to our KPIs to be the
“School of Tomorrow, Today”.
