Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School marks 90th anniversary with mosaic


The unveiling of a specially commissioned mosaic was one of the highlights of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School’s 90th year anniversary celebrations last week.

The mosaic, which each member of the school community contributed to creating, was blessed as part of the festivities which included a school mass to coincide with the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary.

Some of the special guests for the event, which included a repast in the hall, were McMahon MP Chris Bowen, Fairfield MP Guy Zangari, Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone , Regional Director of Sydney Catholic Schools Dr Vicki Lavorato and Executive Director of Sydney Catholic Schools Dr Dan White, an ex-student of the school.

A large number of Sisters of St Joseph who worked in the school and current and former parish priests of Fairfield were also in attendance.

Principal, Brother Nicholas Harsas, unveiled the new mural and cut the anniversary cake with Sister Marion Gambin –  the last Sister of St Joseph principal of  the school.

The school began in 1928 staffed by two Sisters of St Joseph with a small group of children. In 2018 there are 670 students and more than 60 staff.

Last month, Kindergarten to Year 6 pupils presented the history of the school at the 90 Years Young concert.

“Turning 90 years is a significant milestone. It is a cause for celebration as we remember the past, celebrate the present and hope for the future,” Brother Nicholas said.
